Itromboni - Five trombones … one extraordinary experience

This looks like it is going to be a great show!


Five trombones … one extraordinary experience!

I Tromboni was formed in 1999 when five of Canada's finest young trombonists dedicated themselves to the promotion and performance of live music for the trombone quintet. The initial concept behind I Tromboni was to create a virtuoso ensemble capable of reaching diverse audiences by combining unique arrangements of both well-known and new music with stylish and often humorous delivery. The group incorporates music of many genres into their performances including baroque, classical, jazz, romantic, contemporary and popular styles.

Itromboni will be in Temiskaming Shores at Holy Cross St. Croix Church in Haileybury on Wed March 9th 2011. Show time is 8:00pm, ticket prices are $15.00 for adults $10.00 for Students and seniors and kids under 5 are free!

We have tickets for sale here at the store.

Nico Rogers in North Bay and Sudbury

I thought I would pass along some book news. Nico Rogers will be at Gulliver's Quality Books and Toys on Thursday at 7:30pm for a reading from "The Fetch" and in Sudbury on March 2nd at Fromagerie Elgin starting at 8:00pm for another reading from "The Fetch".

Also check out the great book review by Sudbury Star:

Northern Ontario author releases first book, The Fetch

Nico Rogers's childhood is a blur of stories. Sitting at the kitchen table in his Northern Ontario home, Rogers would listen to his father talk about his life in Newfoundland.

"There was so much story telling happening. With various relative passing through, our family was well known to sit around and tell stories more"
