I still know exactly
how my association with Trombone Unit Hannover began. I was practising in a small music room at the university when my mobile rang. Fred asked me if I could come to the canteen and suggested that I bring my diary with me. I was aware that a few of Jonas Bylund’s students wanted to form an ensemble and so I knew then, on my way there, that I would be a part of it.
Now, five years later, I am sitting here writing a text about my personal start with Trombone Unit Hannover. During this time, I have experienced many wonderful and important things with the Trombone Unit boys: the hard work, successful concerts both large and small, the lovely evenings after concerts, and above all the spirit in this ‘TUH family’. These are all things that I really cherish and that I look forward to in the future.
