Artist Spotlight: STS Professor’s Choir

Hosted by Dr. Bradley Palmer, Professor of Trombone at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University (and University of Iowa alum!), the Southeast Trombone Symposium has quickly become one of the regional and national events each summer. Originally a collaboration between the Atlanta Symphony trombone section and Columbus State University, STS now boasts faculty from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, Boston Symphony, and more.

Each summer a group of college professors are invited to join with the STS Faculty to become the STS Professor’s Choir. This year the list of performers as impressive as ever! You will NOT want to miss the concert on the opening night (Wednesday July 11)!!
