Originally from Long Island, trombonist William Lang is an active performer, improviser, and teacher based in New York City. He can be found playing in all settings and styles, from cutting edge new premieres to classical masterpieces with orchstras, as well as Broadway shows and world famous pop artists. He has given his signature unaccompanied recitals throughout the United States, played concertos in both America and Europe, and has also recorded with such artists as Philip Glass, David Bryne, St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, and Jonsi (of Sigur Ros.) Intensely passionate for chamber music, he is a founding member of the groundbreaking ensemble loadbang (an original and unique group of musicians interested in cutting edge music,) as well as a member of groups such as the Lang/Rainwater Project, TILT Brass, SEM Ensemble, and So Wrong it's Right. The New York Times has called his playing "fiercely, virtuosic" and the Boston Globe has hailed him for his "superb performance" in past solo works. William also teaches at the Longy School of Music, and is a performing artist for Stephens Horns.
