The UO Trombone Studio was proud to host Brian Hecht, bass trombonist of the Atlanta Symphony as he presented a master class today at the University of Oregon. Even though Brian was visiting remotely (Zoom) the class still felt authentic as if he was in person. At the start of class Brian performed a beautiful unaccompanied solo and the studio was able to hear what Brian is so famous for – his incredible sound. Two UO bass trombone students, James Kuzmic and Trevor Davison performed for Brian and were able to work with him on topics of sound, style, articulations, connections, musicality, etc. Everyone that was in-person for the class was spaced safely 6ft apart with face masks on.
