Vadim Simongauz joined the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra as the Section Principal timpanist at the beginning of the 2003 season. He has also served on the music department faculty at the Auckland University since 2004, where he coordinates timpani and conducting percussion ensemble.

Following a childhood in Moscow he moved to Tel Aviv, Israel at the age of 13 where he studied with Alon Bor and graduated with honors from the Tel Aviv Academy of Music.
