YSM alumni Stephen Ivany '14 MM and Christopher Brown '14 AD are set to make their Carnegie Hall debut with their ensemble Seminole Trombone Quartet on May 6 at 8 pm.
The program, which takes place in Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall, features a world premiere by John Mackey alongside some of the best of the trombone quartet literature including works by Bach, Debussy, Koetsier, and more. The group will also be joined onstage by Ivany and Brown's former teacher, YSM trombone professor Scott Hartman. STQ earned this prestigious performance opportunity by winning the recent "Noles in NYC" campaign.
The Seminole Trombone Quartet, based in Tallahassee, Florida, is known throughout the southeast and has found success as a first alternate for the International Trombone Association's Trombone Quartet Competition. The group's members hold positions in the Tallahassee Symphony, Gulf Coast Sinfonia, Gainesville Orchestra, and Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra among others. The four members of STQ are all currently perusing Doctor of Music degrees and hold Graduate Teaching Assistantship positions at Florida State University.
