The Choir during
Beethoven, in his composition The
Three Equali refers to our featured instrument as:
"The Voice of God"
And who are we to disagree with the master?
We are the Ritchie Trombone Choir:
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
16 trombones encompass the rich blends of the
romantic, the brilliant fanfares of the militant, the intense passion
of a Wagner march, the gentle nurturing of a lullaby, the intoxicating,
toe-tapping music of Jazz and Swing. Come enjoy with us transcendent
Tchaikovsky, melodious Mendelssohn, brooding Bruckner, marvelous
Mozart, glorious Gershwin, energetic Ellington, jumpin’ Joplin (She:
“Do you like Joplin?” He: “I don’t know, I never Joppled.”), sizzling
Sousa, walloping Wagner, beguiling Beethoven, brilliant Bach, heavenly
Handel, romantic Rachmaninoff and a host of others.
If you are a music lover, check out our calendar to find
when and where
our next concert will take place. Then come join us for an hour or two
of music too good to be legal.
If you are a trombonist, consider joining us. We
rehearse Tuesdays at
the Millwoods Community Church from 7:15 – 9:15. Click
on the “Contact”
link for location and directions. If you are a beginning or aspiring
trombonist, consider joining us for our Trombonanza, a workshop that
