This year at the ITF, we are thrilled to present the low brass section of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Featuring trombonists Joe Alessi, Colin Williams, David Finlayson, and George Curran, and tuba player Alan Baer, these five musicians represent the pinnacle of a low brass section, and have a distinctive sound and style.
The NYP Low Brass will be continuing a tradition of performances featured by our partner for this year, the Southeast Trombone Symposium: low brass orchestral excerpts. Playing portions from both well-known and more obscure symphonic works, this recital on Wednesday July 14 at 2:30PM will give a window both into the artistry of these musicians as well as an insider’s view for how to best interpret various works in the orchestra.
We at ITF HQ are very excited to bring this performance to the trombone world!
