The “Slide Rule Trombone Quartet” is an exciting new brass chamber group centered in the Okanagan Valley. Comprised of Angus Armstrong, Wade Dorsey, Bob Rogers, and Gordon Waters, the group plays a wide selection of musical styles, including works by Bach, Mozart, Saint Saens, Ellington, the Beatles, Jobim and many more. Wade, Bob and Gord are long time members of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, and they also perform regularly in numerous other ensembles throughout the valley. Angus has recently relocated to Vernon from Ottawa, where he played for many years in the RCMP band as well as performing with numerous orchestras and other ensembles. Together they bring the rich, vibrant sound of the trombone to repertoire that is both familiar and new to listeners in a manner that is exciting, beautiful and always musical.
