Legendary composer and conductor Lalo Schifrin exclaimed, "Bob McChesney is a virtuoso and has the gift to bring us the joy of music at the highest level.

High School Quartet Competition

One of the highlights of Trombone Day this year is the high school trombone quartet contest. Quartets will compete in a “Trombone Idol” style venue to be judged by a panel of professional trombonists and educators. All quartet members must be high school students participating in their school’s music program. Quartets will compete in two divisions, one for quartets with all members from the same school and one for quartets with members from different schools.

The contest will consist of an onstage performance of two pieces. The music for the competition will have one required piece, "Prelude from Te Deum", and one piece of their choice that is approximately three minutes in length. The panel will comment on the performance of each quartet and eventually choose a winner from each division.

The quartet contest winner will receive a $200.00 prize to be allocated to their school’s music department. The prize for 2nd place will be $100.00. All participants will receive four raffle tickets each and free admission to Trombone Day.
