Student Quote- “I especially appreciated the inspirational stories, friendliness, individual help, and motivation from Tromboteam and other campers. The experience of playing in the trombone choir was significant to me as well; the beautiful blending of many trombone sounds was new for me and it was great to be involved with such talented musicians.” – Julianna Hinton (2015 Summer Slides Participant)
Student Quote- “The faculty really pushed me to make music, not just play the notes and rhythms on the page.” – Jonathan McNeer (2015 Summer Slides Participant)
