The Royal Northern College of Music Trombone Choir has won the International Trombone Association's prestigious ‘Emory Remington’ Trombone Choir award. 

Two of the ace trombonists, including Muker-born Phil Guy, are appearing at this year's Swaledale Festival with the Aether Quintet (St. Mary's Muker, 14:00 to 15:00 Sunday 29 May) as part of our Young Artists Platform. 

The prize for this competition is an invitation to perform a concert at the 2016 International Trombone Festival in New York, USA. The players have begun a huge fundraising effort to try to raise the money - just over £10,000 - to be able to go. 

For more information and to make a donation, please visit their JustGiving page. Any help you can give these young players would be much appreciated!
