Join us for Tromblow’in 2016

Tromblow’in 2016 is scheduled for Saturday, January 30, 2016 at JMU’s Forbes Center for the Performing Arts. This year, we’re excited to welcome back some old friends as well as some brand new clinicians and guests artists, including: The Washington Trombone Ensemble;  Nathaniel Lee, principal trombonist with the Charlottesville Symphony Orchestra; and Nathan Dishman and the Morehead State University Trombone Choir. With the date again at the end of January, we’re excited to see some new trombonists who may not have conflicts with regional band as in year’s past. So please, spread the word!

tromblowin-2014-mass-rehearsalThis year we’re continuing to offer extra “face time” for you and your horn. Come early (10 a.m.) for a pre-session warm up and sight reading session, or take as much time as you like to test new horns and browse the sheet music before the Afternoon Session starts with the Mass Trombone Choir rehearsal (12:30 p.m.). The afternoon promises some great workshops, talks, and a few recitals, too. We offer a T-shirt for sale (see design below) and we’re back again with the special raffle of a new purple pBone, with proceeds to help fund next year’s guest artists.


Dinner is on your own  from 4:45 – 6:45 p.m. (some great campus dining choices or some close-by local eateries) and the Grand Concert ends the day’s festivities beginning at 7 p.m.

This year we have a new commemorative Tromblow’in T-Shirt. Pre-order your size when you register to make sure we have one for you at check-in.  UPDATE 1/18: The T-shirt order has been placed and we ordered a few extra in each size, which are now available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Don’t wait: register now and we’ll see you on Saturday, January 30 at JMU!
