Slide Fortissimo's CM by Trombone2015

Description: A tenor trombone. He excels to be one of the best musicians in Equestria. His talent is playing the trombone in a professional and well rehearsed manner.

 

Story: When Slide Fortissimo was only 12 years old, he got his cutie mark when his family went to see a concert by the Royal Canterlot Orchestra in Ponyville, Equestria. Before the concert began, the conductor announced that the Principal Trombone of the orchestra had broken his one of his legs on the way to the concert, kindly asking the audience if anypony would like to volunteer to play the musical instrument. With determination and bravery, he volunteered. His parents were surprised, knowing that Slide had been practicing the instrument for less than 3 years. However, his twin brother Green Screen was happy to see that his brother was about to do something awesome and wished him good luck during the performance. 

 

Trotting up the stairs and onto the stage, the Bass Trombonist gave Slide his spare tenor trombone, whispering to him that his performance will be legendary. Taking a deep breath, Slide took his seat and looked at the music on the stand. It was a featured piece for Principal Trombone! He looked at the audience and then back to the sheet music. He had never played any trombone solo in front of an audience before. Closing his eyes, he took another deep breath, and was ready to play the piece. 

 

The audience watched with interest as the orchestra began to play the piece. The concert hall echoed with the sound of a beautiful symphony, resembling a morning sunrise over Ponyville. As he was playing the piece, he felt relaxed and calm, playing the trombone like he never played it before.  When it came to the the solo, the sound of the trombone echoed around the concert hall. With agile breath control and swift motions of the trombone slide, he was determined to finish playing his part with ease. After the solo, the piece ended with a sense of triumph. It only took a moment for the audience to feel impressed by the performance and soon, everypony was giving the orchestra a standing ovation. Green Screen was cheering, his parents were crying happily, and flowers were being thrown to the orchestra. The Bass Trombonist hugged Slide with glee and congratulated him on his performance. Thanking him, Slide felt a flash near his rump. He looked and saw that a cutiemark had flashed onto his rump. It was a tenor trombone! The audience cheered when they noticed that Slide had earned his cutiemark. He placed the trombone onto a stand, ran down to his family, and hugged them with glee, crying with tears of joy.

 

The news of Slide earning his cutiemark at the concert made the news in the paper the next day. That front page of the newspaper is framed and located on the wall of his office at his home in Canterlot. As for the injured pony who played the Principal Trombone, he retired after the orchestra finished that year's tour. The conductor of the orchestra visited Slide in Cloudsdale after the concert season ended and asked him if he would like to be an official member of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra. Slide agreed, and with balancing music and school, Slide has been Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra. 

 

Family: Dad (Pegasus): Crescendo Forte, Mom (Pegasus): Melody Screen, Twin Brother (Pegasus): Green Screen

Occupation: Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra, 

Residence: A house near the theater district in Canterlot. 

 

Character Personality: Respectful, kind, and a very awesome pony, Slide Fortissimo has felt like a true gentlepony on occasion. He tries not to talk too much about certain topics, but feels comfortable when talking about something that somepony else also enjoys. For instance, discussing about a new musical on Bridleway in Manehatten. He doesn't want to get too much attention from fans, but after a concert, he'll give time for fans to answer him questions about his performance. He strives to practice the trombone at least once everyday, even practicing it in the park if the weather is good. He enjoys being loved and respected, especially when he is hanging out with friends and his dearest soulmate too. 

 

History: Slide Fortissimo and his twin brother Green Screen were born in the month of September. While growing up, they became best friends and always enjoyed doing things together. From the age of 3, Slide was interested in the railways of Equestria and felt happy when his family traveled by train on vacations during the summer months. When Slide entered flying school in Cloudsdale, he and Green were excellent students, knowing exactly how to flap their wings for flying at a safe and comfortable pace. At the age of 9, Slide was required to learn how to play a musical instrument. He choose the trombone because while listening to classical music, he felt the presence of the trombone as if it were playing in the living room. After only practicing the instrument for three years, his family took him to see a concert. At that same concert, he earned his cutiemark at the age of 12. It wasn't until he finished high school at the age of 18 when he left Cloudsdale to pursue a degree in Tenor Trombone Performance at the finest music school in Canterlot. Recently, at the age of 22, he has graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Tenor Trombone, displayed proudly in his office. 

 

Character Summary: At the end of the day, Slide Fortissimo keeps to his successful ability as a professional musician. He is very proud of his friends and family, occasionally sending a letter asking about what awesome things are they doing where they live, and is always happy to hear feedback from ponies after certain performances. In conclusion, he wants to make sure that everypony he knows is doing something that they love to do, to keep up the good work, and be absolutely awesome for years to come.
