John Suchet Receives His First Trombone Lesson From RLPO Principal Simon Cowen

As many regular visitors to this blog will know, Classic fm presenter John Suchet will be making his trombone debut with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on June 15th. This will be for the RLPO annual Superorchestra day when amateur musicians are invited to sit in with the orchestra for a day of rehearsals culminating in a concert. John, who also regularly presents RLPO concerts, has not played his trombone for over 45 years. The RLPO brass section were chatting to John at a reception when he was in Liverpool to present our popular Spirit Of Christmas series when he agreed to dusting off his ‘bone’ and joining us. Here is a video of John talking about how much he is looking forward to the event and showing his lesson with Simon Cowen, RLPO Section Leader Trombone, at the new Classic fm studios in London’s Leicester Square…

JOHN SUCHET – CONCERT TROMBONIST

WONDERFUL CHRISTMASTIME

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

This is what Classic fm said on their website…

“Classic FM’s John Suchet tells all about an old flame from his past – his trombone! After falling in love with the instrument as a boy, he lost touch with it and it stayed in its box for 50 years. But now, thanks to the brass section of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the trombone is back!

Watch John chatting about the instrument, his love for it and how his practising is going in the video above.”
