The concept of a trombone choir stems primarily from the much-loved trombone teacher at the Eastman School of Music, Emory Remington. The trombone ensemble he founded and directed for over 50 years was a master class in how to fit in with other players. The "Chief" (as he was called by literally thousands of students) was devoted to the pure beauty of the trombone and the pleasure of each others' company in collectively producing that sound. Several of the selections on this concert were favorites of Remington's.
