Adrian France (sackbut/tenor trombone)

Adrian France is a freelance bass trombonist specializing in historically informed performance on the bass sackbut and a wide array of period trombones.

In a career spanning over twenty-five years, it has seen him perform with many of the world’s leading period instrument orchestras and ensembles as well as continuing to perform on the modern trombone with orchestras such as The Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia and BBC Symphony Orchestra.

In 2018 he was appointed professor of bass sackbut at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (the UK’s first such appointment) and he is also head of brass studies and trombone tutor at Newcastle University. In 2019, he adjudicates for the prestigious Varaždin International Woodwind & Brass competition in Croatia as well as leading masterclasses at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz, Austria.

Adrian is also a founder member and co-director of the English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble—a virtuoso and historically informed ensemble, they marked their twenty-fifth anniversary in 2018 with their latest CD, Music for Windy Instruments on the Resonus label.
