Biography

Douglas Yeo was born in Monterey, California, and grew up in Valley Stream, New York, where he began playing the trombone at the age of nine and Oak Ridge, New Jersey (where he graduated from Jefferson Township High School in 1973). A graduate of Wheaton College (IL) Conservatory and New York University, he joined the Boston Symphony as bass trombonist during the 1985 Boston Pops season after having held the same position for four years in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. His broad-based musical background has included two years as a high school band director, a four-year tenure with the Goldman Band, and performances with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, the Gerry Mulligan Big Band, and orchestras for numerous Broadway shows.

Since coming to Boston, Mr. Yeo has been involved extensively in teaching, both at New England Conservatory of and at the Hamamatsu (Japan) International Wind Academy and Festival. Douglas Yeo has been a soloist with the Boston and Baltimore Symphony Orchestras as well as the Boston Pops Orchestra; on each occasion he was the first bass trombonist to perform as soloist with the orchestra. His recent solo appearances in Boston’s Symphony Hall have included the Christopher Brubeck Bass Trombone Concerto in 1999 and 2000 with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra, which was broadcast on the Public Broadcasting System’s “Evening at Pops” series
