The Trombone: Big Band Backbone

17/09/2022, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Trombone Backbone

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.

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