This day-long clinic will feature trombonist Mr. Scott Hartman, Professor of Trombone at the Yale University School of Music and The USMA-West Point Trombone Quartet.

Mr. Hartman who joined the Yale faculty in 2001, received his B.M. and M.M. degrees from the Eastman School of Music and began his career by joining the Empire Brass Quintet and the Boston University faculty in 1984.As a trombone soloist and with his various chamber groups, Mr. Hartman has taught and played concerts throughout the world and in all fifty states. He regularly performs and records with the Yale Brass Trio, Proteus 7, the Millennium Brass, the Brass Band of Battle Creek, and the trombone quartet Four of a Kind. Mr. Hartman spends several weeks each summer in residence at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival.
Our guest chamber ensemble, The USMA-West Point Trombone Quartet, is well known and highly regarded for their dynamic and energetic performances. Members of the West Point Band are world-class professional musicians who serve as support personnel for the student cadets of the Academy. The ensemble is considered one of the premier musical units of the United States Military. In addition to their responsibilities in the band, the trombone quartet regularly performs at both military and civilian events around the country, including many education tours at schools and universities.

Mr. Hartman and members of the USMA-West Point Trombone Quartet will lead the participants through a series of interactive activities including group warm-ups, trombone choir rehearsal, masterclasses, panel discussions, recitals and direction of a large “en-masse” trombone choir performance of all participants.

DSU Trombone Day will provide a unique learning experience to a number of different constituents. Participants will be engaged throughout the day with activities that will require listening, thinking and playing. In addition to serving Delta State students, this event will bring together students from regional high schools, community colleges and other four-year institutions, as well as trombone players of all ages. Join us for some world-class performances!

The concerts at 11:30 and 3:30 are free and open to the public, however, clinic participants will be assessed a registration fee, which will be used to help defray costs.
