I've just re-registered on tMP after an absence of several years. I'm a full time musician (orchestral trombonist) but my real musical passion is playing euphonium in a band. I grew up in a Canadian SA band and these days I play in a New Zealand A Grade Band. Additionally, I play trombone in Prof. David King's National Australia Brass (the best band experience I've ever had) and in June / July I'm traveling to Kerkrade with the National Band of NZ. I love contesting and I'm looking forward to taking in some major UK and European events in the next few years. A few weeks ago, I released a solo CD (Dancing With Torunn) and - if you're interested - you can hear the tracks on www.myspace.com/torunnrose It's not your usual band stuff but if you let the last track run on for a few minutes after it finishes, you may get something more traditional I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
