Lack of trombonists in Bakersfield schools initiates event

About 152 students attended

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield City School District held a Trombone Day at Sequoia Middle School's auditorium on Thursday.

152 students participated in the event today.

Trombone day was inspired after the school district's Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator noticed a lack of trombonists. The music department decided that the only solution was to pump up students about the idea of playing trombone in the school music program with a two-hour educational field trip.

Thanks to the support from Yamaha Corporation and Nick Rail Music, professional Bass trombonist and Yamaha Performing Artist, Robert Soto, was the clinician. 

Soto is a native from El Paso, Texas, and has performed internationally.
