Fruehling Posaunen (Spring Trombones)

April 2

The Frühling Posaunen (Spring Trombones) Festival is an annual event started in Spring 1989 by Dr. John Marcellus of the Eastman School of Music, Dr. Hal Reynolds of Ithaca College, and Penn State’s Mark L. Lusk. The idea was to get the trombone students from three different academic institutions together annually on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) to share their music and ideas. The event over the years has featured a diverse array of guest artists, and guest ensembles from many other fine schools of music. Over the years thousands of trombonists and guests have enjoyed the variety of music presented at the main concerts, and especially the grand finale which often combines all the participants.

This year’s finale concert will feature the Ithaca College Trombone Troupe, the Eastman School of Music Trombone Choir, SUNY Fredonia’s Trombone Choir, and the Penn State Trombone Choir, with guest soloist Brittany Lasch.

Free, open to the public
