Our mission is to provide a select group of talented students an engaged and rigorous schedule of trombone choir, chamber music, solo work, orchestral and wind ensemble study. Baylor trombone students become prepared for professional playing opportunities and teaching careers alike. The studio is a close knit group of focused individuals from diverse backgrounds who seek to be competitive in the music business. Time is spent on orchestral section playing, audition technique, listening sessions, score study, quartet and choir performance in various musical styles.
Exciting News for this Spring
Brent Phillips is proud to announce an ambitions new recording project.
The first of these involves Mr. Phillips third solo CD of music by Anthony Barfield, Scott McAllister, Stravinsky, O'Donnell and Persichetti.
This CD will feature several premiere recordings to include "TARKUS" - this will be the piano reduction version of the work for Trombone and Orchestra premiered by Mr. Phillips with the Harrisburg Symphony in 2007.
Other notable arrangements include Christian Paarup's arrangement of Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite for trombone and piano.
Other works will include bass trumpet playing and the Baylor Trombone Choir in a newly arranged version of video game music by John Romero (Principal Trombone Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra)
The second project will feature the combined forces of the current Baylor Trombone Studio and a first time gathering of the Baylor Alumni Trombone Choir. The "Beacon" has been lit and we look forward to posting the roster soon!
Recording sessions will begin this spring and complete mid June!
If you would like to help fund this project, please contact Mr. Phillips directly.
Stay tuned for development opportunities and more news!
