UK trombone wins Berlin postNews
The young British trombonist Angus Butt, fresh out of the Royal College of Music, has won a coveted Academy position with the Berlin Staatskapelle.
Angus is presently Bass Trombone at the European Union Youth Orchestra.
What does an academy post consist of? Is it paid
The Berlin Staatskapelle website says: “The academy is open to university graduates (minimum required: Bachelor) and post-graduates under the age of 27 years, and offers a monthly scholarship of 1.176 EUR over a period of two years.”
Yes it is paid. And comes with a chance of joining the Staatskapelle at a later point in time.
