A new Trombone leading to a role as Musical Director

A new Trombone leading  to a role as Musical Director

The Sir Thomas White grant helped fund the purchase of a new trombone while I was studying for my A level music and Grade 8 trombone exam 7 years ago.

With this new instrument it helped me get a B for the A level and a merit for my Grade 8. 

Whilst at university I used the trombone in performances with many groups across the south coast including a performance of the Rimsky-Korsakov Trombone Concerto with Portsmouth University Orchestra. 

I have since upgraded to a custom made trombone and have performed as Principal Trombone of Northampton Symphony Orchestra for the past 3 years as well as with many brass bands in the local area, including 3 performances at the finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain. With this experience gained from playing I have recently been appointed Musical Director of Towcester and Daventry Brass Bands.
