American Trombone Workshop 2021

Post by jeremyesmith » Thu Feb 25, 2021 11:23 am

Hi All,

Has there been any word on the American Trombone Workshop for 2021? Their website, for a while now, says a virtual one-day event in early March (which starts next week).

https://www.usarmyband.com/trombone/

Thanks for any help!

I've been checking it every day too. I'll have to take a day off work and need to give the boss some notice.

Hope there will be a seminar this year - even if it is just a one-day virtual event. Either way, I'll miss the college trombone choirs and vendors.

In the meantime, I enjoyed the US Army Band Trombone Choir version of the 1812 Overture; released yesterday. If you missed it, look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeQGaeIZcI4.

Be sure to watch to the end!

Wow! Some impressive playing! Especially at the top and bottom ends. Kudos to the guy playing the altissimo lines on a tenor!

Hi All,

To answer some questions, the plan is to have ATW in the second or third full week of March. Due to recording work that is currently ongoing, the date has not yet been set in stone or website. Please stay tuned to our website at https://www.usarmyband.com/trombone/ for information in the coming days. There will be some great guest artists and virtual performances, so I hope many of you are able to virtually attend.

To acknowledge the 1812 recording, the full roster is made up of members of the Ceremonial trombone section of Pershing’s. SSG Kyle Peck did the Herculean job of arranging the work, and it was a blast to put together.

Great 1812! It's funny how you get a new appreciation for pieces like that which get overplayed so much if you play in an orchestra, when you hear a trombone version! Fantastic playing to go with a fine arrangement!

Is the 1812 arrangement potentially available for purchase?

Hi Kingsk117,

You can find the arrangement available for purchase here.

Thanks to Ilan’s site, a huge amount of the payment finds its way to the composer/arranger.
As someone who’s played 1812 many times in the orchestra, this is worth the time to purchase and play with some friends, colleagues, or with students. I know my colleagues and I had a blast working it up and recording it.

For those concerned about ATW, still expect a date in the next few days. We just recorded with the best guest artist anyone could ask for...

Thanks so much for the link. The video is so much more fun to watch when reading the score along with it. Wow!

Technical difficulties? I've been watching since 0900, still nothing.

I even ran a cable to listen wired rather than put up with wifi slowing down later on like some years.

Nope, operator error. My daughter explained (patiently, and only a little condescendingly) to me that going to the Event was not the same as being on the ATW page where the videos were playing, and I missed the warmup thinking I was waiting for it to start.

I've been back and forth multiple times and can't see how I was supposed to figure out how to get where I needed to be. I know I'm really old but have you ever looked at the age distribution in the seats at Bruckner hall? Bimodal with peaks at 15 and 70.

I'm listening to a bit of the solo. My goodness those kids are good! Hope I can catch the Harry Watters at 1100 but suspect the probability is only about 25%, unless my daughter consents to help again.

Nope, it definitely was a little unclear. I couldn't figure it out either, but I decided to go to the ATW page and found it on there.

The 0900 warm-up was excellent and they include the lead sheet as a download. Good quality audio and video and it is already available for review on the American Trombone Workshop Facebook page. Worth a look/listen. Thanks Army Band/Army Trombones/ATW.
