We are please to announce the 2019 Shepherd Trombone Workshop which takes place on June 2, 2019. Trombonists will spend a full day learning and working on basics of the instruments, attending masterclasses, hear a faculty recital, and perform in a trombone choir concert at 4:30 in the evening for family and friends. In just our second year we are presenting international faculty who come with an enormous level of talent and experience.
Kirsten Lies-Warfield, a composer and trombonist, brings with her a wide jazz, commercial, and contemporary style. Lars Peder (LP) Brinks Sørensen is an accomplished freelance bass trombonist and conductor of brass bands in Denmark. He works with symphony orchestras all over the country and is the advisor to young trombonists via the Danish Youth Trombones organization. Shepherd University professor of trombone James Martin is active as a chamber musician, soloist, orchestra, and commercial player. Other faculty members include ret. Pershings Own trombonist Fred Gleason, Angela Johnson of FullBownTrombone, and composer Frank Gulino who is published by FJH Music Company among others. Registration is open to middle school, high school, and college trombonists. They will all work in their own age groups.
Any person from the community interested in trombone playing or teaching is welcome to register as an auditor to the workshop. Auditors are free to roam about and observe all sessions in the college, high school, and middle school divisions of the workshop.
