Bass Trombone

Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
It meant that I got to sit at the back of the class and get away with not paying attention. I like the sound of the trombone but at the time that wasn't really a consideration since we all sounded like garbage and I didn't know what it was supposed to sound like until years later.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
I don't really care what I do as long as I like it and I'm happy. If that's playing Bass Trombone in an orchestra then great but if not I'm sure I'll figure something else out.

How do you feel you will benefit from participation in NYO Canada? / Comment pensez-vous que votre participation à NYO Canada puisse vous aider?
Since being out of school I've found summers the most difficult to stay in shape. There are no gigs you've got your day job and it's nice outside. NYO provides a chance to keep active playing-wise not to mention it gives you the chance to play some good rep. Something that doesn't come along to often in the freelance world.

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
Science. The nature of things. German. Space.

Who is your favourite classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (classique) préféré ?

Who is your favourite non-classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (non classique) préféré ?
John Lennon

What has recently played on your Mp3? / Qu’écoutez-vous ces jours-ci sur votre Mp3?
Metronomy Battles Prokofiev War and Peace Xenakis Echange Ligeti Cello concerto

If you weren't touring with NYO Canada what would you be doing with your summer? / Si vous ne faisiez pas partie de NYO Canada que feriez-vous cet été?

What is there about you that you think people might be surprised to know? / Y a-t-il quelque chose à votre propos qui est un peu surprenant ou hors de l’ordinaire?
That I really want to be in an 80s Electronica band.
