Inspired by the signature song “76 Trombones” from their upcoming production of Meredith Willson’s The Music Man, Arena Stage is aiming to bring together more than 500 trombone players on Friday, June 1, at the Washington Nationals Park to set the world record for largest all-trombone orchestra. Partnering with FAME (The Foundation for the Advancement of Music & Education, Inc.), Arena Stage aims to focus awareness on the musical education needs of children in the greater DC Metro area.
Maestro Larry Goldberg has created a new orchestration of the beloved musical’s signature song (ambitiously titled “7600 Trombones”) divided into 7 parts for trombone players of varying levels of ability (Beginner to Expert).
Participation is free! And Participants may stay after the performance to see the Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves game for free. Invite family & friends to join you at special ticket price as low as $10.
Registered participants may obtain the sheet music for their portion of the song at www.fameorg.org. An information packet will be sent upon receipt of completed registration forms. Participants must provide their own trombone and are expected to learn their piece in advance of the event.
