The WTAMU Trombone Choir will be performing in Mary Moody Northen Hall on Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

The Trombone Studio is an active performing ensemble in many on and off campus events each semester.

“The Trombone Choir performs a wide range of repertoire including classical orchestral, choral, jazz, rock-and-roll, Latin and pop music,” Assistant Professor Dr. Raimundo Morales said.

Morales also said that the choir performs at the JBK during holidays and presents educational concerts.

“Currently, the choir is comprised of 31 trombonists,” Morales said, “and there will be alto and tenor trombones, among others.”

Freshman Nick Cook said it will be his first time performing as part of the choir.

“We had to a do a lot of practice,” Cook said, “and Morales like to us to practice two hours a day.”

Cook also said that he has been playing the trombone since the sixth grade.

“[In the concert,] you will see a lot of the techniques that you won’t normally see,” he said. “You’re going to see various trombones such as a the alto trombone to a contrabass trombone.”

Cook said working with Morales has been amazing.

“He works to our level,” he said, “He teaches in ways that we will understand.”

Social Work major Elena Vargas said that she has never been to one of these concerts but is excited to attend.

“I have never found the time to go to one music concert,” Vargas said.

The concert is free for the community.
