2015 Third Coast Trombone Retreat Call for Scores

March 19, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

The Third Coast Trombone Retreat is an annual summer festival welcoming talented trombonists from across the country to the shores of Lake Michigan. Exposing participants to the music of our time is central to the Retreat’s mission. Trombone ensembles have a powerful and moving aesthetic with vast capabilities of dynamic contrast and vocal-like expressiveness. Winning pieces will be performed by the Anthony P. Hopkins Memorial Trombone Choir and participant trombone quartets during the 2015 festival, recorded in high quality and shared via all social media platforms. See www.tromboneretreat.com/call-for-scores for more information.
