Nice to Read

Occasionally we come across something that is just plain nice to read. Paul Compton has been doing some incredible teaching at Oklahoma State University and his work is getting noticed.

Paul’s trombone octet performed as the Remington Choir at the International Trombone Festival in Utah this past month. The ITF was well-organized and well-attended, and Edwards is proud to support this organization by sponsoring ITF artists and the Carl Fontana Jazz Trombone Competition. This year’s artists included Marshall Gilkes, Darren Kramer, Jim Markey, and Trombones de Costa Rica. They all performed exceptionally well and we’re thrilled they’ve chosen to play Edwards.

If you are not a member of the International Trombone Association (ITA), please join today. It’s through membership that this organization succeeds. It is up to trombone players to support the trombone and live music.
