Iowa Trombones

Post by JohntheTheologian » Tue Jul 02, 2019 2:48 pm

Here's information about the Iowa Trombones, an annual gathering of trombonists in Iowa. I've done it on 3 different occasions and it is a very enjoyable way to spend time reading mostly 8 part trombone ensembles with other serious trombonists and performing as part of the Waterloo Municipal Band concert in the evening. The gathering is on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls for the rehearsals.

Here's the website link with a further link to register beforehand-- not necessary-- and most of the information on that website.

The Iowa Trombones event is a gathering for trombone enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels for a day of playing and talking about trombone. Most of the day is spent reading and rehearsing trombone ensemble music. The event culminates with a pre-concert program and performance with the Waterloo Municipal Band.
SCHEDULE FOR JULY 11, 2019!
REGISTRATION: 8:30AM - Enjoy complimentary donuts, juice, and coffee before the festivities begin.
READING SESSION: 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM - This session is dedicated to reading through a vast assortment of trombone ensemble literature. This session will consist of three 45-minute chunks playing followed by 15-minute breaks.
​LUNCH: 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM - Doing what we do best! Grab a bite and chat it up with fellow trombonists at one of the many eateries in Cedar Falls.
REHEARSAL: 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM - This session(with break) is dedicated to selecting and rehearsing the program for the evening performance.
PRE-CONCERT PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE: 6:45 PM to 8:15 PM - The Iowa Trombones perform a short program before the start and during the Waterloo Municipal Band's evening concert.

Travis, I might not be able to make it, but I'm going to try. Look forward to seeing you again if we're both there.

BTW, it looks like somehow I neglected to put the link to preregister.

Not going to happen this year. My car is down with a bad wheel bearing and needing brakes replaced. Parts are ordered and need picked up but not sure if it will get finished today or not. Life happens.
