RNCM Trombones with Adrian Morris 1

The trombones of the Royal Northern College of Music are elated after winning first prize in the International Trombone Association’s ‘Emory Remington Trombone Choir Competition.’ With Principal Trombone of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Simon Cowen at the helm, the group was able to fight off competition from the Julliard School of Music and Boston University.

The first-ever British Trombone Ensemble to win this prestigious award, Bass Trombonist Josh Cirtina had this to say; "We are absolutely delighted to have won the competition. It’s been a particularly difficult year for the department, so this achievement really means the world to us. We know our greatly missed teacher and friend, Benny (Adrian Morris), would be absolutely over the moon."
