“The 46th annual International Trombone Festival got underway yesterday, hosted by the Juilliard School. It runs through June 11 with a variety of performances and events, including a flash mob on the Plaza at Lincoln Center,” reads an unsigned Thursday (6/9) article at MusicalAmerica.com. “A record 370 trombones gathered Wednesday at the fountain to perform arrangements of ‘One Hand, One Heart’ from West Side Story and ‘The Pilgrim’s Hymn’ from Tannhäuser. That’s New York Philharmonic Principal Trombone Joseph Alessi conducting. And all in the rain, no less.” Included is video from the event.
