Send Rose City Trombones to ITF2018

Please help send Rose City Trombones to the 2018 International Trombone Festival. 

Rose City Trombones is a group of passionate musicians dedicated to showcasing the majestic trombone. Our goal is to provide concerts and education outreach which explain the mysteries of this shiny machine. Our musicians come from area orchestras, bands and music schools around the USA. We have had many thrilling performances around the northwest including the Oregon Symphony prelude, TEDxPortland, NBA Portland Trailblazers, All Classical FM and the University of Oregon.  Rose City Trombones also performs with area music groups, charities and schools.  Since 2015, we host Trombone Christmas Northwest open to any trombonist. Our music styles include classical, cinematic, jazz, popular and Rock & Roll unplugged.

In 2016 we were honored to represent the USA at the Beijing International Tourism Festival.   Amazing  performances made possible in part by all our friends and sponsors through GoFundMe!

And whoops - we've done it again...

RCT has been invited to the pinnacle conference event of the trombone universe.  Just in case you haven't heard of it, trust us - it's kind of a big deal.  We will perform and give a panel talk at the pretigious International Trombone Festival in July 2018.   

We are asking for your help to make this ITF performance a reality.   Donations will help defray the costs for travel, conference registration, instrument shipping, trip insurance, music and uniforms.  RCT  current members include college students to retirees.   We are so grateful for any support you can provide. We are also seeking airline frequent flyer points that can be used on Southwest, Alaska, United, Delta, American or Frontier.   Thank you!

To discuss frequent flyer points transfer, how to send a check via USmail, or for general questions contact us at rosecitytrombones at gmail dot com.
