Jazz Trombone Day and Competition at the University of North Texas
The event serves to inspire through great guest artist and student performances, educate our students and the community through clinics, promote the instrument through the development of young trombone artists via the competition, and collaborate with great companies that share our passion for jazz and jazz education.
The University of North Texas and BAC Instruments are excited to announce the first annual BAC Instruments/UNT Jazz Trombone Day and Competition, to be held on UNT’s Denton campus on Saturday, October 26, 2019. This event is poised to take center stage as one of the premier jazz trombone competitions worldwide. The competition is open to all trombonists ages 30 and under (as of the submission deadline). Finalists will receive travel and accommodations to compete in the final round of the competition during the BAC Instruments/UNT Jazz Trombone Day. The winner will receive recognition via our social media, a BAC Custom Jazz Trombone, a cash prize, and a scholarship to attend the University of North Texas (toward a degree with Jazz Trombone concentration at the bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral level).
