Every day in June, a pair of trombone opera excerpts will be published here (and on Facebook). When you visit each day’s battle, listen to the two excerpts and vote for your favorite. Each day’s winning excerpt proceeds to the next round.
Many thanks to Roger Cutts, Principal Trombone of the Welsh National Opera, who created videos in celebration of International Trombone Week during COVID lockdown. His looped recordings tell the story of many operas from the perspective of the trombone section. Thirty-two of his opera excerpts will face off during the championship.
Everyone is invited to participate.
