Midwest Trombone & Euphonium Conference 2015

IMG_0088This post is long overdue, but I wanted to express my gratitude to Dr. Jemmie Robertson for hosting another fabulous MTEC conference at Eastern Illinois University (October 30th-November 1st). The featured guest artists were bass trombonist Randall Hawes from the Detroit Symphony and The American Trombone Quartet (Nathaniel Lee, Zsolt Szabo, Bill Mann, Jemmie Rombertson). I had the opportunity to perform with the MTEC PROfessors Choir again– a fabulous trombone choir made up of Midwestern college professors. In addition to the incredible concerts and recitals every night, Randal Hawes and Jemmie Robertson led the morning warm up sessions and college masterclasses. I was very excited to have a chance to conduct one of the mass trombone choirs; it’s amazing what the students were able to put together in a short amount of time! This year I had the opportunity to present my research on the chamber music theater works by composer William Osborne for trombonist Abbie Conant. I couldn’t have been more pleased by the crowd’s reception of my presentation. It is always a pleasure to share your passion with an open-minded and interested audience.
