Clarinetist/Saxophonist Linus Wyrsch, is a frequently booked recording and live artist based on the East Coast, with a passion for jazz, Brazilian and Latin music. He is known for his bright yet mellow sound and his versatility. Currently, he is working with several groups in and around New York City. Since 2009, Linus is also successfully producing and hosting his own Jazz Radio-Show for breakthruradio.com.
After classical and jazz lessons in his home country Switzerland, Linus heard about Berklee College of Music. During his time at the school in Boston, he recorded and performed extensively, amongst others with The BandA EcLectics and Akousma. He also had the chance to learn from renowned teachers Frank Tiberi, Shannon LeClaire, Fred Lipsius, Oscar Stagnaro, Victor Mendoza, Mark Whitfield, Peter Cokkinias, Fernando Brandao, Mark Shilanksy and more.
Upon graduating Summa Cum Laude from Berklee in 2008, Linus relocated to New York City. While getting more involved in the Big Appleâ€™s jazz scene during the Fall of 2008, Berkleeâ€™s â€œ50 Years of Bossa Novaâ€ celebration gave him not only the opportunity to jam with and open two concerts for Cesar Camargo Mariano with a student and alumni band, but also to be part of an Orchestra accompanying a concert of the legendary Oscar Castro-Neves. In summer 2009 Linus traveled to Japan for a successful tour with flutist Akiko Iko and her Brazilian group and in February 2010 he was part of a West Coast tour with Funk/Rock band â€˜Red Abbeyâ€™. Inspired by his peers, he looks forward to continuing to play with New Yorkâ€™s preeminent music talents, and making a lasting mark on the scene with his radio show and live performances.
