WHO WE ARE
The UD Trombone Studio includes students from more than 6 states studying Music Education, Composition, and Trombone Performance at the undergraduate and master's levels. Trombone students perform in symphony orchestra, opera and pit orchestras, wind ensemble, symphonic band, jazz ensemble, jazz combos, collegium musicum on sackbut, brass quintets, and marching band. In addition, within the trombone studio there is the Trombone Choir, UD Slides Jazz Trombone Ensemble, and several chamber ensembles.
The UD Trombone Choir performed at the 2014 International Trombone Festival at the Eastman School of Music and at the 2017 American Trombone Workshop. Students have been selected for many prestigious summer festivals and honors ensembles including the Southeast Trombone Symposium, Marrowstone Festival, Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, Atlantic Brass Seminar, and many others. Recent studio alums have gone on to successful performing endeavors in the US and abroad, teaching positions, or received graduate assistantships to further their studies.
