Internet doing acrobatics for Stephen

Tuesday 4 April, 2017

Brass players throughout the banding world have being doing acrobatics to help raise money to fund vital treatment for Stephen Sykes, the talented trombone player who is fighting a battle against Hodgkins Lymphona.

Move aside Ice Bucket Challenge, now it's all about the Acrobat Challenge. The popular trombone solo by J.A. Greenwood has already been performed on trombones, pbones, cornets, keyboards and on a tractor, with tap dancers and dog accompaniment.

Trombonists and wannabe trombonists get involved - every penny raised counts!
