Fabrice Millischer has currently established himself as one of the most talented trombonists of the younger generation, particularly since he won first prize at the prestigious ARD Munich in 2007, the first year the competition was open to trombonists.

Born in 1985 to a family of musicians, Fabrice Millischer distinguished himself by his rich and uncommon musical evolution. He started studying music with the piano in Toulouse but he was singled out as a cellist and as a trombonist. He then enrolled in the Lyon Conservatoire to perfect his skills in trombone with Michel Becquet and in sackbut with Daniel Lassalle. In the meantime, he followed the instruction of Roland Pidoux and Xavier Phillips at the Paris Conservatoire in cello.
