Bones Apart Biography

BonesApart members - Becky Smith, Jayne Murrill, Helen Vollam and Lorna McDonald - are committed to raising the profile of the trombone as a chamber music instrument by demonstrating its versatility. They have travelled widely throughout Europe and the USA working with players of all abilities presenting masterclasses at universities and music colleges. Formed in 1999, the all-female trombone quartet Bones Apart has quickly established itself as one of the world's leading young chamber ensembles. Winners of the prestigious Royal Over-Seas League Competition, Rio Tinto Ensemble Prize and Miller Trophy, Bones Apart have performed at major UK venues including London's Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Fairfield Halls, St. Martin-in-the-Fields and St. James's Palace. Bones Apart have recorded a number of CDs - Enigma (2006), four4four (2009), and their special tenth anniversary CD ten has received great reviews.
