Georgia 2021: International Womens Trombone Choir

The ITF is proud to kick of a brand new initiative for 2021! In the spirit of long-standing traditions like the Cramer Choir, the ITF is excited to feature an ensemble of outstanding, invited female trombonists, to perform a concert on the Festival program! As outreach, this program will also include mentorship and networking events for invited student trombonists, who are looking to pursue a career related to trombone. We are honored to celebrate the accomplishments of female musicians around the world, and look forward to featuring this ensemble for many years to come!

Students who are interested in participating, stay tuned! Application materials will be posted soon.
