The ITA thanks Brad Edwards for generously creating seven different fanfares in honor of International Trombone Week! Every one of his ITW Fanfares are available to you to download and perform. We hope you'll play your favorite one this year and let us know about it.

Special thanks go to Brad not only for writing these wonderful fanfares, but also for providing our community with supporting PDF files and MP3 / MIDI recordings at no cost. (Keep in mind that the recording quality is typical for MIDI and that effects such as glissandi are not reflected.)

In addition to being a contributor to ITW from its inception, Brad teaches trombone at the University of South Carolina and currently holds the position of Principal Trombone with both the South Carolina Philharmonic and the Augusta Symphony. We encourage you to visit his website www.bonezone.org where he maintains quality resources for trombonists of all playing abilities. BoneZone offers helpful tips on intonation, rhythm, high range, accuracy and phrasing, print and sound downloads, information and links to his three books "Simply Singing for Winds", "Lip Slurs", and "Clef Studies", and much more.

Please contact Brad Edwards if you wish to record this work.
