The Trombone: Big Band Backbone – Act Belong Commit Concert

16/09/2022, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Trombone Backbone

The WAYJO NC Pathways Program Training Band and WAYJO St John of God Health Care Tuesday Night Orchestra Featuring Jeremy Greig, Catherine Noblet and Will Pethick

Trombones are the backbone of the big band, providing the harmonic foundation, the brassy punch and the guts of the band.

This concert features three of WA’s finest trombonists and WAYJO alumni. Jeremy Greig, Catherine Noblet and Will Pethick all served in different eras of WAYJO, coming together to showcase the instrument Beethoven once described as “The voice of God” – you be the judge.

This 1-hour Act Belong Commit Concert offers students and teachers behind the scenes insights into jazz composition and performance, with ample opportunity to ask questions of our professional Music Directors, orchestra members and guest artists.

Guest artists appear thanks to WAYJO’s 2022 Major Programs Partner, Minderoo Foundation.

WAYJO’s Pathways Education Program is supported by Healthway promoting the Act Belong Commit message, and our Major Partner Minderoo Foundation
