Jeunesses Musicales Canada to present
a series of musical and educational events
featuring acclaimed trombone quintet I Tromboni in Vancouver
Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JMC) will present a series of exciting musical and educational events featuring the acclaimed trombone quintet I Tromboni, as well as performances by dynamic young performers of works by Canadian composers Michael Conway Baker, Jordan Nobles and Marjan Mozetich. These events are made possible by “Youth Take Charge,” a program under the auspices of Montreal-based Jeunesses Musicales Canada to put youth in charge of producing and performing concerts of their own creative inspiration in their communities. This initiative is made possible by a Heritage Canada grant that awarded 15 communities across Canada the opportunity to present these concerts, providing acclaimed artists I Tromboni as mentors and performers.
The events are as follows:

2:30-3:30 – Educational presentation with I Tromboni at Lord Byng High School.
4:30-6:30 – Masterclass with I Tromboni in Gessler Hall, UBC Music Building, 6361 Memorial Rd.
