Trombonist Curtis Biggs is Finalist in American Trombone Workshop Solo Competition
DMA bass trombonist Curtis Biggs has been selected as a finalist in the American Trombone Workshop Division III Solo Competition. The American Trombone Workshop is hosted by the United States Army Band "Pershing's Own" at Brucker Hall, Fort Myer, Virginia. This year the Workshop will take place from March 7th -10th.
Each year the American Trombone Workshop (ATW) hosts its National Solo Competition. This event gives students and young professional trombonists the opportunity to compete against their peers. It has drawn competitors from around the world. Recordings are sent to ATW for review in November. From this semifinal round, up to three entrants per division are invited to compete in an open public recital during the workshop in front of a distinguished panel of judges. The judges select winners and provide valuable comments to the competitors.
The experience gained through making a quality audition recording and learning how to perform in a competitive environment is invaluable for musicians of any age or performance level. The ever-growing number of entries received is evidence that the National Solo Competition continues to be one of the workshop's most exciting and anticipated events.
Curtis will be performing New Orleans by Eugene Bozza. The ATW live streams all its events and his performance can be streamed in March on http://www.usarmyband.com/watch-listen/live-webcasts.html
