The UGA Trombone Choir provides a musical outlet for studio members and non-majors alike. Directed by Dr. Josh Bynum, this group meets twice each week, and features a variety of musical styles and creative opportunities for the students (including conducting, arranging, and soloing).

Repertoire for the Trombone Choir ranges from original literature to transcriptions of classical and popular music. We are also committed to new music, regularly taking part in commission consortiums to expand the repertoire from diverse perspectives.

In addition to campus concert and engagements, the UGA Trombone Choir has been a featured ensemble at the 2021 International Trombone Festival, the 2020 American Trombone Workshop, the UGA Spotlight on the Arts President’s Reception, as well as the GMEA Conference President’s Reception and Exhibits Showcases. A particular highlight for the Trombone Choir was performing the National Anthem for the UGA v. Notre Dame football game in 2019, for an audience of 96,000 fans!
The Hodgson Trombone Ensemble is a select group of 8-10 members from the UGA Trombone Studio. Repertoire features musically and technically demanding original works and arrangements that showcase the abilities and agility of the smaller group.

The Hodgson Trombone Ensemble has been featured at the 2013 & 2021 International Trombone Festivals, the 2012 & 2020 American Trombone Workshops, and several GMEA Conferences.

Both groups also perform regular outreach around the community, including local schools, nursing homes, hospitals, music guilds, and church services.
