Berklee Professor Phil Wilson Receives Lifetime Achievement Award
(Published: August 31, 2010)

Phil Wilson, world-renowned trombonist and Berklee College of Music professor for 45 years, recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Trombone Association (ITA) at the 2010 International Trombone Festival at the University of Texas, Austin. He was presented with the award by Don Lucas, president of the ITA and a Berklee alumnus who studied under Wilson.

Wilson is a noted jazz educator and big band arranger who has performed and recorded with a who's who of jazz, including Louis Armstrong, Woody Herman, Frank Sinatra, Clark Terry, Buddy Rich, Herbie Hancock, the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, and the NDR Big Band. Wilson directs the internationally acclaimed Berklee Rainbow Band, which he formed in 1965 during his first year on the faculty at Berklee.

The ITA Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes people whose contributions have distinguished them in the trombone profession over a long career, reflecting a commitment to excellence and achievement. Past recipients of the ITA Lifetime Achievement Award include Willie Colon, Milt Stevens, Buddy Morrow, and Berklee alumnus Dick Nash.

Berklee College of Music was founded on the revolutionary principle that the best way to prepare students for careers in music was through the study and practice of contemporary music. For over 65 years, the college has evolved constantly to reflect the state of the art of music and the music business. With over a dozen performance and nonperformance majors, a diverse and talented student body representing over 70 countries, and a music industry "who's who" of alumni, Berklee is the world's premier learning lab for the music of today - and tomorrow.
