The Merit Trombone Choir has been invited to perform at the 2019 International Trombone Festival on Friday, July 12. In addition to raising funds to pay for rehearsal and travel expenses, we are looking to provide scholarships to enhance our students' experience and attend the ITF Youth Workshop. It costs $650 (tuition/room and board) for each student to attend. Many of my students at Merit are low-income, and I would like to find a way for them to do more than just perform at the ITF. The Youth Workshop is a fantastic opportunity for our students to meet and play with other young trombonists from around the world and to hear some of the world's greatest professional musicians. Thank you for your consideration!
