The British Trombone Society’s latest Trombone Day is to be held at the Hexagon Music Centre, Coltman Road, Beverley, HU17 9LP on Saturday 2nd October 2010.
If you are a trombone player of any age and any standard, come along and get involved. Hopefully enough players will be found for a rendition of “76 trombones” as it should be played!
The day is very informal with plenty of opportunity to hear the amazing talent of the trombone section of the Black Dyke Band.
Chris Gomersall, principal trombone with the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band is offering masterclasses to anyone brave enough to stand at the front and play, and along with a recital by Stephen Lomas, winner of the BTS Solo Competition 2009 and time built in to play in the trombone choir and make-shift duets, trios and quartets, there should be something for everyone.
