Southeast Trombone Symposium
June 22-27, 2017
March 16 update: We are no longer taking applications for the Participant and Performer classes at STS 2017. We encourage you to participate as an Auditor.
The 2017 Southeast Trombone Symposium will feature the world-class faculty that frequent attendees have come to expect. Joining CSU's professor of trombone Dr. Bradley Palmer on the STS 2017 Faculty are: Colin Williams and George Currran (New York Philharmonic), Nathan Zgonc (Atlanta Symphony Orchestra), and Bill Thomas from the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich. This year we are very excited to announce our guest faculty member: James Markey from the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Please have a look around on this website, starting with the general information page, and also check out our Facebook page. Take some time to watch some of the videos from past STS events on our youtube channel. The STS has grown into one of the largest and finest trombone symposia in the world, and the 2017 event is shaping up to be the best ever. STS 2017 will be a week full of inspirational faculty performances, informative master classes, and opportunities for attendees to perform in trombone quartets and trombone choirs in the world-class facilities of Columbus State University's Schwob School of Music.
