Who We Are -- Our Intention
The trombone is a symbol of divine presence, the voice of the angels, and
an instrument of the last judgement.
The Bones of Intention Trombone Ensemble is composed of amateur and
professional trombonists from Lexington and Columbia, SC and surrounding
areas. We all enjoy making music and sharing it with others. We're
dedicated to making the most of all our years of training and practice (and
making our teachers proud).
We regularly rehearse on the first Monday of each month and the group
performs publicly 2 to 4 times per year in a concert/recital
setting for the enjoyment of our audiences and to help raise money for
worthy causes -- mostly in support of charity groups that help children.
Additionally, we (or subsets of us) have been known to participate in the
regular Sunday or holiday services for various churches in the area.
We play a wide range of music from classical to traditionals and jazz arranged
from quartets to 12-part choirs. Sometimes we have incorporated other
instruments (such as organ) and other special guests. We ensure that a
good time is had by all!
We do not charge any fees for our appearances or performances through we
do hope that donations will be made to the various causes that we support.
If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me.
