Tenor Trombone Audition Repertoire
The Aspen Music Festival and School trombone department will award up to four merit-based fellowships that cover tuition and room/board for the summer season. Two of these fellowships offer the opportunity to play premiere assignments alongside artist-faculty from major U.S. orchestras or as principal in a variety of ensembles. If available, the ACA fellowships (as many as two) come with the opportunity to play for the all-fellowship Aspen Conducting Academy Orchestra. This high-level orchestra is the training ground for the conducting program and offers the opportunity for a student to shine on standard orchestral works. Availability of these fellowships will be posted in early December.
Fellowships are awarded to the most outstanding applicants as deemed by the members of the AMFS Artist-Faculty.
Both non-ACA trombone fellowships are available. Availability of the fellowships with the Aspen Conducting Academy will be posted by early December.
