Bromley Temple Salvation Army is hosting a trombone workshop in Bromley (Kent) on Saturday March 28th 2015. The event will feature some of the finest trombone players in the country. We are thrilled to be able to announce that our guests this year are:
Bones Apart, Black Dyke Trombone Quartet, Brett Baker and Paul Woodward.
Collectively, they will be leading the day’s activities, looking at technique, sound production, breathing and performance.
The day will be hosted by Bromley Temple Salvation Army Band, and is open to all trombone players, regardless of age or ability, with the aim to inspire, motivate and encourage all trombonists who are able to attend, regardless of whether they are members of The Salvation Army or not. All are welcome!
The event will kick off at 10.00 (with registration, coffee and tea from 9.30), and will generally take the form of previous events, incorporating massed blow’s as we form our collective Trombone Choir, but we’ll also have the opportunity to listen to a recital by the Black Dyke Trombone Quartet during the morning session. Unfortunately for us, Black Dyke Band now have a concert on the same day, so Adrian Hirst and Garry Reed will be leaving around lunchtime, but Brett and Paul will be there for the day.
The afternoon session will include a session run by Bones Apart during which we will learn something about them, and be treated to some music from their repertoire.
In addition to all this, we will continue to work on some music with the gathered trombone collective, and then perform it as a group in the evening concert.
The day will culminate with a Festival of Music, which will feature Bones Apart, Brett Baker, Paul Woodward, The Trombone Choir (comprised of workshop delegates) and will be supported by Bromley Temple SA Band under the leadership of Bandmaster Geoff Nunn.
Don’t worry if you can’t stay for the evening, but we hope you can!
£10.00 for the day (students £6.00) – payable on the day

Unlike previous years, we are not offering the option of a hot meal at lunchtime, but Bromley town centre is very nearby with various places to get food. We will be offering a buffet tea after the workshop however.
Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day.
We will be delighted to welcome visitors during the day, who may like to come along and listen in on proceedings.
For details of parking in Bromley, see here.
There is also a large car park in the Intu Shopping centre in Bromley, which is probably the best bet for a long duration stay. Details here. It is also a short walk to our hall.
Parking restrictions are lifted at 6.30pm on Saturday’s.
If travelling by train, you need to get to Bromley South. The hall is a 10 minute walk up the high street. Ethelbert Road has a Maplins electronics store on the corner.
