In the run up to A celebration of Cuban music at The Jazz Cafe ft. Diáspora12-piece + Fiesta Latina on 30th October, we're running an artist focus on the players joining us for the night.
A small child’s imagination is easily captivated, and for Tom it was the sonorous colours of the brass on the many CDs that his parents used to play that got him excited every time. With an ancestry of brass-banders it was in the blood, and seeing bands playing around Frampton Cotterell was what made him say, “when I grow up, I want to play the trumpet."
Accolades include National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain OFFICIAL, Wells Cathedral School, The Company Music Theatre and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, which culminated in his final recital: Brandenburg to Broadway. A true all-rounder, he has performed extensively on numerous denominations of the trumpet, with barely a single genre forgotten, contributed to the lead lines in the upcoming Diáspora album. To add to his portfolio, Tom is an avid classical singer, performing professionally around London in choirs and as a soloist.
