Troy Trombone Ensembles
Trombone students (majors or not) are invited to audition each year for the Troy University Trombone Octet. Auditions are blind and are held at the beginning of each academic year (replacement auditions are held if necessary in the spring to fill openings).
The Troy Trombone Octet rehearses during the Monday/Friday 1 p.m. class time. This offsets Wednesday studio class at 1:00 p.m. Usually there will be one coached rehearsal per week (either Monday or Friday) while the other time is used for an uncoached rehearsal. When conflicts (such as faculty meetings, if I am out of town presenting at a conference, student recitals, or university changes) arise that effect the MWF 1:00 p.m. schedule, we have some flexibility to work around it (maybe a Wednesday quartet coaching or a Friday studio, for example). All members of the Troy Trombone Octet should be available MWF 1:00p.m.
Performances for Fall 2019
Performances will include Wednesday student recitals (1p.m.), City of Troy Trunk or Treat (likely), Sounds of the Season, and the Alabama Music Educator's Association Conference in January, 2020. Other performances may be added based on interest and availability.
Fall 2019 Audition Information
Auditions for the Fall 2019 Trombone Ensembles will take place on Thursday August 15th between 10:00 a.m. and noon. There is no sign-up ahead of time. I will be in my office (facing the wall as to not see anyone) and people can come in whenever there is no one auditioning. Place your name on the list right before you enter and this will provide an assigned audition number. Results will be emailed (usually same day).
