    BBC Symphony Orchestra appoint Rob O'Neil as Bass Trombone. Good to see one of the most popular young players in the business land one of the top jobs. Well done Rob. :clap:

    It's been on the cards for a while now, but I'm glad they finally pulled their finger out and made a decision. Certainly no disrespect to the other bloke either, for ages they couldn't decide between Rob or Andy Waddicor (ex B&R player). I'm pretty sure Andy's time will come soon though.

    All the best to Rob. Nice bloke, lovely player.

    Awesome player and nice bloke, was privileged enough to be taught by Rob before I left school, just listening to him warm up was frightening. He can certainly parp it out.

    For the people who noticed something strange here, earlier today: everything should be settled now.
    Please feel free to continue discussing the topic of the thread

    Thanks to the mods

    Thanks for sorting this out, it's a pity when a genuine good news story gets hijacked!
    Rob has done his bit in banding and we don't want to scare these players off from the world of banding.

    I've had the pleasure of sitting in the same section as Rob for many years now, superb player and really nice guy.
    Well done Rob.
