Flexible Trombone Choir

Dr. Brad Edwards,

I am very excited about this awesome opportunity to commemorate the 26th Annual North Carolina Trombone Festival! The Festival was founded on the principles of inclusivity and accessibility. In that spirit, this commission will be orchestrated for a flexible trombone choir – beginners through professionals. Dr. Bradley Edwards, Professor of Trombone, Arizona State University, is an experienced composer and pedagogue, who has published many resources and compositions that are suitable for trombonists of all ages. He is a perfect candidate to create this flexible orchestration!
