Brett Baker and the Brass Band Bones?

Written By: David Read Comments: 0

Brett Baker is forming a trombone ensemble of brass band trombonists from across the country. It is just one part of a new drive to expand the reach of the British Trombone Society in the brass band movement, spear-headed by the famous solo trombonist of the Black Dyke Band and Vice-President of the BTS. All trombonists at the Cambridge Masters International Championships on 28th May are encouraged to drop by the BTS stand to meet with Brett who is keen to hear your views on how the society can be more proactive in the brass band movement between 10am and 4pm. At 4pm there will then be a brief meeting for all that can make it with the aim of setting up a Brass Band Developmental Team within the BTS. Brett aims to invite leading players in the movement to take part in a trombone ensemble that will then play at a recital in Birmingham Symphony Hall as part of the International Trombone Festival along with the Black Dyke Trombone Quartet at lunch time on Saturday 22nd July. In addition Brett is aiming to create a trombone ensemble of brass band trombone players throughout the country that can play at future BTS events. Anyone that would like to get involved in the Developmental Team, e-mail Brett via his website.
