Lars Karlin was born in 1983 in Borlänge, Sweden, and started playing the trombone at the age of twelve under Hans-Göran Olsson at the local Music School in Borlänge. Further studies were made under Prof. Sven-Erik Eriksson in Stockholm, Prof. Jonas Bylund in Hannover and Andreas Klein in Berlin.
Lars has performed as a trombone soloist with several Orchestras such as the Dalasinfoniettan Sweden, The New European Ensemble of Den Haag, Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, The Polish National Chamber Orchestra and The Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. He is also member of the Trombone Unit Hannover since the start of 2008. Lars is a prize-winner of several international music competitions such as the Lieksa International Trombone Competition 2008, The Aeolus International Competition for Winds in 2010 Düsseldorf and the Deutsche Musikwettbewerb 2011 Berlin.
From 2011 to 2013 Lars held the principal trombone position in the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra in Denmark were he mainly got the opportunity to work as a very varied musician and trombone player. One day as the leader of a great orchestra trombone section, another day concert for children dressed up as a naughty elephant playing “ A Baby Elephant Walk", and yet another day as a more traditional soloist with the orchestra. He decided however to leave his position for further studies in Berlin, where he now lives and works as a freelancer while finishing his Studies under Andreas Klein at the Universität der Künste Berlin. In 2015 his first solo Record “A Swedish Trombone Wilderness” with ONLY Swedish Music will appear on the label of Genuin in the the co-operation with the Deutscher Musikrat.
