IBeam and NYSWU presents the Second Annual Trombone Festival. The festival spans 5 nights throughout April 2010 and features a diverse roster of trombonists leading their original projects and bands in New York City. The trombonists presented here represent a wide range of approaches to the instrument each with a unique voice in both composition and improvisation.

The month of April is now officially (in the least official way possible) Trombone month in Brooklyn, and to celebrate, NYSWU is teaming up with Ibeam Music Studios to present their second annual Trombone Festival throughout the month. Most events will be held at Ibeam Music Studios, 168 7th Street in Brooklyn, but look out for the Alan Ferber Nonet and Ryan Keberle’s Double Quartet at 58 N6th Media Labs.

$10 Suggested Donation at all shows.
