Yes, we dare to present a trombone and piano recital… and we dare you to attend! Peter Moore was only 12 years old when he won the BBC Young Musician Competition, becoming the youngest winner ever. At 18, he became Co-Principal Trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra. There’s so much more we could share about the accolades and achievements of this young musician, but we’ll save that for the program booklet. He is, quite simply, an extraordinary musician and we’re delighted that he’s making his Canadian debut on our stage. James Baillieu, a renowned chamber musician and collaborative pianist, is no stranger to the VRS having performed with soprano Tara Erraught in 2018.
