    Trombone Choir

    I am starting a new Trombone Choir based in the Halifax/Brighouse are of West Yorkshire. We are to use the bandroom of the Clifton & Lightcliffe Band for rehearsals starting in September. It would be usefull to read bass, due to space limitations we have to restrict the choir to about 16 to 20 members.
    Rehearsals will be once a month in the first place. Startingthis trombone choir came out of the BTS Northern Regional Event held last May when several trombonists asked about other playing opportunities.
    Please contact me if you are interested.
    The practice venue is near the M62 & major West Yorkshire cities & towns,whilst only 45 minutes from Greater Manchester.
    Please let me know if you require further information.
