Crown Member Finshes 2nd In National Classical Solo Competition
2nd year Carolina Crown member Weston Olencki returned recently from Washington DC where he competed in the 2008 Eastern Trombone Workshop National Classical Solo Competition. He did a beautiful job and wound up as the 2nd place finalist. His performance was web-cast live from the music hall at Ft. Myer, Va.
Several of his 6 judges were classical trombone recording artists and hold principal chairs in orchestras in the US, England and Germany!
