Natalie Colegrove

Associate Orchestra Concerto Competition Winner

Natalie Colegrove, age 16, is the winner of the annual California Youth Symphony Associate Orchestra Concerto Competition. She began her euphonium studies at age 11 and is currently studying with tubist Tony Clements. In Natalie's first three years of performing, she was selected as the principal euphonium for the 2017 California Junior High All-State Honor Band. In 2018 she was accepted into the California All-State Honor Band and ranked as one of the top high school euphonium players in California. Since then, Natalie has played in many ensembles, including the All-Northern California Honor Band, the Santa Clara County Honor Band, the Ohlone Community Band, the Ohlone Tuba Ensemble, the CYS Wind Symphony, the CYS Associate Orchestra, and is now playing bass trombone with the California Youth Symphony Senior Orchestra. Most recently, Natalie has been accepted into the Honor Band of America, the most prestigious honor band in the nation. This past summer, Natalie placed second in the student division of the International Euphonium and Tuba Festival’s solo competition. She is currently a junior at Cupertino High School. In addition to playing music, Natalie enjoys composing, baking, and managing her euphonium-based Instagram and apparel business, @euphieslife.
