The Weekend Sun Competition



Tauranga Trombone Collective is a quartet presented by Tauranga Musica and made up of some of the region’s best trombonists.


The group has been put together by Joe Thomas, a local who soloed with the Bay of Plenty Symphonia in June this year.  


Between them, members have performed with Orchestra Wellington, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra, Opus Orchestra, Rodger Fox Big Band, Tauranga Big Band, Superhero Second line, Justice Brass Band, and the National Brass Band of New Zealand.


Members have also won countless National Brass titles in the form of duet, quartet, tenor and bass trombone.


Their concert next month will see a variety of works originally written for trombone quartet, and others adapted and improved for quartet.


They play on Sunday, August 1, from 4pm at Tauranga Park Auditorium, 383 Pyes Pa Road.


Tickets will be available at the door or from:   



The Weekend Sun has one double pass for the Tauranga Trombone Collective on August 1 for one lucky reader.
