Welcome to the Southeast Trombone Symposium website! After taking a year off to host the International Trombone Festival here at Columbus State University, we are thrilled to bring the STS back in 2014. All of our sponsors are back on board and we will once again host the solo competition and the orchestral excerpts competition, and give free Shires trombones to the winners. Sheridan Brass and Hickeys Music will once again give over $1000 worth of prizes to the other finalists. The STS faculty include the Atlanta Symphony trombone section, CSU Professor of Trombone Bradley Palmer and a guest faculty member to be named soon. The week includes master classes, faculty recitals, faculty orchestral excerpt classes with participants sitting in the section, trombone quartet and choir performances and much more. Take advantage of the opportunity to work very closely with the faculty and enjoy getting to know participants from all over the world! Please join our group on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube Channel to check out videos from 2012. More information will be posted here soon, but please read about the 2012 event below.
The third-annual Southeast Trombone Symposium was held at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University June 18-23, 2012. Participants worked closely with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra trombone section, including Colin Williams, Nathan Zgonc and George Curran, and Dr. Bradley Palmer, trombone professor at Columbus State University. We were thrilled to bring in a new faculty member that joined us for the 2012 STS to coordinate the new Performer Class, Dr. Denson Paul Pollard of the New York Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. The Symposium is held annually in the world-class facilities of the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University in Columbus, GA, less than 100 miles from Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
We once again hosted two competitions at the STS. The S.E. Shires Solo Competition and the Orchestral Excerpts Competition each offered as a first prize a new Shires trombone set up by the Shires staff at the Symposium. Our other sponsors, Sheridan Brass and Hickey's Music, were once again on board, and provided well over $1000 of additional prizes to other finalists in both competitions.
Your next opportunity to be a part of the Southeast Trombone Symposium will not be until 2014 because we are taking a year off as the International Trombone Festival comes to Columbus Georgia in June of 2013. The STS faculty and the STS Professors Choir will perform at the 2013 ITF. Please join our group on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube Channel to check out more videos from 2012! Many more videos will be uploaded soon...
Our most sincere thanks goes to Steve Shires and his fantastic staff for their support of the STS!
