Bass trombone evening Codarts

Yesterday evening I organised a bass trombone evening at the "Codarts" Conservatory.

6 of my students were there to join me in a session of Daily routines and after that all played
a solo piece. I asked everybody to judge the playing of their colleagues.


This gives the students a good chance to exercise audition situation. The ambience was very good and
all students experienced it as a very positive thing.
Beside being nice to each other they also gave very good critics. As teacher it is always very helpful to hear
what the student hears when he is Not playing himself.

The charming Astri Karoline Ellann played a nice duet of D. Schnyder with
tenortrombone guest Zenas Kim

Zenas Kim
helped Astri in their duet. Bravo Zenas, very good playing.

Nick Sholl
played the other Lebedev Concerto.

Kevin Absillis
performed the famous Sachse concerto in F

Reinaldo (CoCo) Donoso
nailed the Bozza New Orleans.

Ricardo Afonso
played the most well-known Lebedev for us.

Pablo Ruiz Henao gave a virtuous performance of Concertino by Casterede.

Konstantin Koev was not able to join us because he was in Finland to play there
the Alpine Symphony by Richard Strauss.

Also Jesse vd Ham did not join us because he helped the The Hague Conservatory
in their Big Band. They needed badly a bass trombone for a project.
