About Trombone Day:

It is the most wonderful time of the year! Another great Ohio University Trombone Day is coming up soon. I hope you can join us!

The Ohio University Trombone Day 2019 will be a full day of trombone-related activities at the Ohio University School of Music in Athens, Ohio on Sunday, January 27. Trombone Day will include a group warm-up, master classes, mass trombone choir and a final concert. I am excited to announce that our featured artist will be Peter Ellefson; my mentor and trombone superstar. 

Trombone players and brass enthusiasts of all levels and backgrounds are welcome. High school and college students are strongly encouraged to participate.
