Commissions 

I find great importance in commissioning and performing new music for trombone. I have had the opportunity to work with wonderful composers, and I urge you to visit their websites and listen to their work. 

 


Sheila Silver (b. 1946) - Down by the River (5:00) - Premiered May 2016 at Carnegie Hall

Instrumentation: Trombone Quartet

One movement trombone quartet piece based on Raga Shree (from Hindustani Classical Music). The trombone slide is used to evoke this tradition.
