BRASS BAND BOND STRONG FOR JOSH
Trombonist Joshua Davis with son Mark. band, so we all learned together and eventually we each got to sit next to our dad in the band and they’d look after us and teach us. It was great fun and we just kept going.
“All of the basics you need to play a brass instrument, playing with a beautiful sound and working with others, I got from playing with the ensemble from a young age.”
Davis joined WASO in 2008 and teaches at WAAPA.
He will feature as soloist when WASO present the world premiere of Australian composer Paul Stanhope’s Trombone Concerto during concert classic series Asher Fisch Conducts Schumann at Perth Concert Hall, November 17 and 18.
Davis said Stanhope’s concerto was 20 minutes.
“There’s lots of contrast and a condenza in the middle where I get to do some acrobatics and other things, which is fun,” he said.
