SoCal Trombone Day is a one-day, annual event taking place at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, CA. Trombone Day features student ensembles, exhibitors, and world class artists in a dynamic, full-day program of concerts, master classes, and competitions, culminating in a performance by Bones West, SoCal’s premiere trombone choir. Open to students, teachers, professionals, vendors, hobbyists, and enthusiasts, SoCal Trombone Day is truly all things trombone – you’re sure to come away inspired!
A long standing tradition in the area, and originally founded by Bob Sanders, Trombone Day found a home at Mt SAC in 2017, under the leadership of Karen Marston, Len Wicks (Bones West), Michael Hoffman (Pacific Symphony/Cal State Fullerton), and Bob Sanders (Pacific Symphony, Ret./Cal State Fullerton) and continues as a mainstay regional event, annually. Past guest artists have included David Rejano of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, international soloist Peter Steiner, NY-based jazz trombonist and composer Marshall Gilkes, and SoCal legends Bob McChesney and Dick Nash.
