Performance Opportunities

All trombonists perform in a chamber ensemble of some kind on the Fall and Spring Trombone Night concerts. Any groups wishing to rehearse more seriously can register to receive coaching. In the past I've had quartets give full recitals and prepare audition tapes for competitions.

The Carolina Trombone Collective (CTC) is select ensemble of trombone students at the University of South Carolina.
Besides trombone ensembles, students participate in the main ensembles at USC...
