Born in San Diego, California in 1960, multi-instrumentalist William Haubrich joined the Cape Town Symphony in 1982 and was soon ensconced into the local jazz and African music scenes. He has arranged and composed for symphony orchestra, jazz ensembles, theatre, choirs, African groups and has an international reputation combining Western and Southern African music and musicians. He performs professionally on trumpet, trombone, bass trombone, sackbut, euphonium and tuba, and runs the William Haubrich Brass Studio on the international SoundBetter platform.
William works tirelessly as educator and clinician to bring South African brass players to an international standard. His classical students fill the brass sections of national orchestras, while his jazz students perform internationally and win awards for their CD recordings and compositions, including the Global Peace Song Award-Jazz Category.
