Mark Hamilton

Mark Hamilton has been a member since 1985 of the Klezmer Conservatory Band. As the only trombone player of the revue In the Fiddler’s House, he appeared with Itzhak Perlman on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

A talented educator, he is on the jazz faculty at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan. He is the former instrumental music director at Applewild School in central Massachusetts, where his bands consistently won top honors at the International Association of Jazz Educators festivals. Both an arranger and composer, he specializes in klezmer and jazz music for concert bands and other ensembles. He created HamilTunes to publish this music and make it available for school and adult bands.

A busy freelancer (even though he plays the trombone), Hamilton has performed with Joe Williams, Victor Borge, Robin Williams and Joel Grey, among others. A proud graduate of New England Conservatory and the University of Delaware, he is also a founding member of the ensembles Brass Planet and Klezperanto.
