Steven Booth, Baritone soloist and musical director of ‘The Trusts’ Waitakere Brass, has secured the title of 2008 Australasian Baritone Champion after his recent wins in Australia and New Zealand.
Steven convincingly won the Open Baritone class at the recent National Championships held in Christchurch. He chose to play Rhapsody for Baritone, prompting comments from the adjudicator such as 'beautiful expressive opening’, ‘great playing’ and ‘lovely sound and control'.
This victory comes close on the heels on Steven’s win at the Australian National Championships in March, where his performance of Concerto Per Flicorno Basso was described as ‘simply sensational’.
Steven plays exclusively on the LMI Royal baritone made by London Musical Instruments.
