Welcome, and thanks for visiting the online home of the world's only trombone and marimba duo, Summerglen!
Who We Are...
What happens when a trombone meets a marimba? You get Summerglen--positive, peaceful, and heartfelt music! Summerglen, the world's only trombone and marimba duo, is dedicated to bringing positive energy and creative original music into people's lives. With a sound that listeners describe as "magical", "hypnotic", and "enchanting", Summerglen transports audiences to a serene and tranquil place during every performance.
Summerglen is trombonist Christina Thompson and percussionist Andrew Munger. Both Christina and Andrew are classically-trained musicians with over 20 years of experience, who have enjoyed fruitful careers as freelance and symphony musicians in the Raleigh, NC area. Despite their success with interpreting other people's music, Christina and Andrew have always longed to express themselves through their own musical creations.
Starting in 2006, the pair began experimenting with ways to draw the beauty out of their unique combination of instruments, and gradually integrated the trombone/marimba format into their freelance work. In April of 2012, Christina and Andrew performed their first all-original show, and Summerglen was born! Today, Summerglen has completed two nationwide tours, and is on a mission to continue sharing its distinctive musical flavor with listeners around the world.
