Slide Action is an multi-award winning quartet, formed in 2018 with the simple aspiration of developing the trombone quartet into something different…
Passionate about creating a new voice for the trombone they regularly commission new music from composers, collaborate with other musicians and create their own arrangements.
The quartet has had multiple competition successes including 1st prize in the 2019 International Trombone Quartet Competition at the International Trombone Festival and 1st Prize in the prestigious Royal Over-Seas League Mixed Ensemble competition 2020.
Slide Action are currently 2021/22 Britten Pears Young Artists, where they are taking part in a year long residency at Snape Maltings, collaborating with other world class performers and composers, strengthening their commitment to new music.

Collectively they have worked with the Royal Philharmonic, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Aurora, BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, Hallé, to name but a few.
