Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to attend any of the Trombone Celebration events?


Nothing! There is no cost to attend.




What is the masterclass?


From 12:30-2pm, Toby Oft will present a masterclass that includes him performing, working with a few students I have already chosen to perform and he will talk about how to achieve success on your instrument.




Do I need to bring anything to this event?


You should bring your (clean) mouthpiece to try the different instruments in the exhibit room. There will be many different items to purchase if you'd like, including: an event t-shirt, oils, music, mutes, stands, cases, mouthpieces, trombones and more. If you're a high school trombone player or post high school trombonist, consider bringing your instrument to join in on the mass mob trombone choir that will be performing at the end of Toby Oft's recital. More about this on the next question.




What is the mass trombone choir performance?


At the end of Toby Oft's recital there will be an opportunity to perform with him on the final piece, Never Walk Alone. In order to participate in this, you must be in high school or above (college or professional). There will be a 15 minute rehearsal for this from 2:30-2:45 in the auditorium on the day of the event. Trombonists participating in this will put their instruments in a safe area backstage before the recital and then come up from the audience when it's time to perform. There is no need to dress up for this. I'd highly suggest, especially for high school students, to contact me to receive music ahead of time. I'm excited to have as many players as possible, but would still like to have a good performance. My email is mrb4band@gmail.com.




How long is Toby Oft's recital?


Toby's recital begins at 4pm and should by done by 5:30pm.
