Oliver Bartlett – Second Trombone
Oliver started playing trombone at the age of 9 after starting violin and piano lessons at aged 6 and joined my counties Junior Brass Band and Junior Orchestra, then progressed through the Cardiff County and Vale of Glamorgan Music Service to be principle Trombone
I played for both the Youth Orchestra and Brass band along with a 2 year stint as Principle Euphonium in the brass band. I was on the National Youth wind orchestra
of Wales on euphonium in 2016 and 2017 and then 1st trombone on the National Youth Brass Band of Wales 2018 and on trombone in the National Youth orchestra of Wales 2019 along with being awarded places on the wind orchestra and brass band along side that.
I have also had the pleasure of playing at the proms twice. In 2017 a late night prom and in 2018 I played in the first night of the proms live on the BBC and am currently in my first year of studies in the Royal Northern College of Music.
I am really looking forward to been a member of this great team at strata brass.
