Ben on Tour

Muro - 2005

The fifth trombone/tuba curso in Muro/Spain again was a big hit.
Most of the participants of this year's course with the teachers.
This year Javier Colomer introduced the tuba to the course to make the low brass complet.
This made this years faculty staff look like:

Jorgen van Reijen - tenor trombone
Ben van Dijk - bass trombone
Javier Colomer - bass-tenor trombone
Hendrik Jan Renes – tuba

This years faculty staff + Johan de Meij and Matthias Kruger.
This year there were some 40 participants. The atmosphere was very friendly and everybody had a great time. Every day started with warm/up sessions by the teachers. Breathing exercizes and daily routines with explanation of everything made the start of the day very fruithfull.
Openings day and getting organized!
Then there were masterclasses dealing with solo-repertoir, orchestral literature and general problems. Part of the afternoon was used for trombone-ensemble and tuba-ensemble rehearsals.
Special guest ensemble this year was the New Collective .
This now already legendairy trombone ensemble from Holland played a stunning concert. The program showed many dfferent styles of the trombone literature. 
Brandt Attema played a great performance of Eric Ewazen´s Concertino and Jorgen van Reijen showed of in a speedy interpretation of Blue Bells . 
Hendrik Jan Renes and Ben van Dijk joined the group as soloists in Steven Verhelst Bastasia .
The concert was a big hit and the ensemble will be returning for the next years curso!

Having a god time in the evening. Fiesta!!!!
