Christian Kercy, Trombonist

Christian Kercy, trombonist

Christian is thirteen years old and has always loved music. When he was three years old, he performed Amazing Grace as a vocal soloist for the children's charity Variety, and went on to participate in the Archdiocese Boys Choir of Philadelphia. Christian started playing the trombone in Play On, Philly! and loved the trombone as soon as it was introduced to him. Christian now also participates in the Philadelphia Sinfonia. 

Music is a means of expression for Christian and helps him to overcome his shyness. Play On, Philly's staff and teachers have helped Christian gain confidence, and he is extremely grateful for their guidance and encouragement. Christian hopes to attend college as a trombone major, and studies privately with Jarred Antonacci.
