Born in Zug and raised in Baar, Jonas Inglin came into contact with music at an early age through his music-interested parents and received lessons in trombone and piano at a young age at the music schools in Baar, Zug and Cham. During his time at the Kantonsschule Zug, Jonas gained his first important experiences in improvisation and composition, as well as playing in symphony orchestras and big bands, laying the foundations for his stylistic openness and diversity. In 2013, he began preliminary studies with Prof. Markus Wüest at the HSLU – Music, from which he graduated in 2017 as the best graduate in the classical music profile, which was honored with the “Strebi” Memorial Prize. This was followed by a Master of Arts in Music Education with a minor in Jazz Performance, which Jonas Inglin also completed with top grades in 2019. In 2022, he completed his second master’s in orchestral performance with a minor in composition with Martin Schippers and Dieter Ammann at HSLU.

The result is a colorful bouquet of musical activities: Jonas is sousaphonist in the band Pocket Rockets, bass trombonist in the Zurich Jazz Orchestra and plays his own music with duodendron. As an adjunct, he also performs regularly with symphony orchestras such as the City Light Orchestra, the Kammerphilharmonie Graubünden or the Sinfonietta Schaffhausen. In addition, since 2018 Jonas conducts the Feldmusik Unterägeri, as well as the choir laut&luise and composes or arranges music, for wind orchestras, children’s theater or wind sections of pop bands.

Jonas Inglin has received a grant for his free artistic work from the Canton of Zug in 2022.
