Massimo Joins Cleveland Symphony

Friday, March 7th, 2008

I met Massimo La Rosa while attending the 2006 Alessi Seminar in Italy. A standout in the seminar, Massimo played with great clarity and control and had a stage presence that was enjoyed by all in attendance. A year later, he auditioned for and won the Cleveland Orchestra principal trombone position.

Massimo recently visited Elkhorn in order to update his old T350. I worked with him to tailor the sound and feel to his new section and Severance Hall. I feel we were able to achieve exactly what he wants his trombone voice to be. Congratulations to Massimo for winning the audition (on his Edwards!). We wish him great success.
