Dutch Bass Trombone Open 2010

Dutch Bass Trombone Open 8 - 9 - 10 October 2010"

This year we already have the third version of a wonderful, very special event.
I have been involved in the first 2 super editions of the DBTO.
Together with great artists on the bass trombone like
Bill Reichenbach, Czaba Wagner, Phil Teele and Douglas Yeo these previous versions were a great success!
I think this third version will again be another special gathering of bass trombonists!

For me this version will be very special.
Special because we have, besides the wonderful Mark Frost, a full DUTCH team of artists.
But not only this is very special to me, even more special to me is that all my three DUTCH co-artists are all former students of mine.
All three,
Jos Jansen, Martin van den Berg and Brandt Attema have made impressive international careers themselves of which I am very proud!

I am absolutely 100% sure they will give the participants of this third DBTO the time of their lives!


For more information,reviews and pictures of the first two events,
Please visit the DBO website at:

The Dutch Bass Trombone Open is an initiative of Marcel Schot and Bert Damsma.

The event is open to all bass trombone players, regardless of age or ability- there's no "competition" element involved at any stage.

The event will consist of a series of performances, masterclasses, ensemble playing and other demonstrations, all led by our amazing team of bass trombonists.

The DBTO can host a maximum of 50 players at the event so you better be quick!!!

No tenor trombones will be used, permitted, harmed or damaged in any way during this event!
