Trombonopolis Op. 4 - Registration due November 17th 2017

From Washburn University:

I wanted to remind you all about Trombonopolis Op. 4 happening at Washburn University on December 16th. This year we have Marcus Lewis and Austin Seybert as guest artist/clinicians. Marcus is the Artistic Director of Future Jazz, leads his own quintet and big band, and tours with Janelle Monáe.  Austin Seybert teaches low brass at Bradley University and is prolific in both the classical and jazz realm. They will be hosting masterclasses and performing on the concert.

There will also be age-friendly trombone choirs to participate in as well as a mass choir of all the trombonists. The event is from 9am-5pm with the concert at 4pm.  The registration fee is $25, which includes lunch and a t-shirt!  Registration form and fee is due by November 17th. To register, visit and fill out the online form.  All ages & ability levels are encouraged to participate!!!

This year we are having a t-shirt design contest - the winner's registration fee will be waived! Design submissions should be emailed to by November 15th.  The design needs to include "Trombonopolis Op. 4, Washburn University, December 16 2017"

I have a flyer in pdf format that I can email you to post or distribute to your students. I have also posted the flyer under the "Files" section in this group (It is titled 'Op. 4 flyer')

If you have any questions, please contact me!
