[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Sunday June 7th saw the British Trombone Society’s national day held at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Matthew Lewis organised the day, which included the inaugural Ian Bousfield competition, a quartet competition, the premiere of Rob Holliday’s arrangement of Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, a couple of masterclasses, one for the bass trombones by Roger Argente and the other by myself. My personal highlight was the final performance of Eric Crees’ ’76 Trombones’, in which not only was I lucky enough to get Bolero excerpt, but I also got to sit next to my former teacher Lindsay Shilling. Well done Matt Lewis, an excellent day. Congratulations must also go to Mike Buchanan and the Bucharest trombone quartet for winning their respective competitions.
If I manage to find the video I will post it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
