PSO Sub-list auditions

This past Saturday, 8 ASU trombonists had an opportunity to sub-list auditions for the Phoenix Symphony. The audition took place on the main concert hall stage and they received feedback from music director, Tito Muñoz and principal trombonist, Chris Wolf.
Many thanks to those two gentlemen for sharing their time and expertise!

Congratulations, Tim Hutchens.
