Henri Gerrits

Henri Gerrits - Trombonist/Composer/Arranger

Henri studied trombone at the Enschede Conservertory in the 80’s. 10 years after that he studied arranging- & composing with Joan Reinders and graduated in the 1999’s.

After his study he wrote for various Dutch orchestra’s like: The Metropole orchestra, Holland Big Band, Jazzmania, and beside that also arrangements for for all military orchestra’s in Holland and for several theatre productions. In 2011 he wrote a 25 minutes jazz suite titled “Noor Nederlandse Jazz Suite” for a workshop commissioned by stichting swing. That suite was written for concert band and rhythm section as a promotion for jazz music.

Here is a composer/arranger in the first place, good for varying spheres achievement, with the sections not as blocks face each other, but are intertwined in many ways, with surprising sound colours as result.
