TROMP makes BoCo its only U.S. stop

TROMP makes The Boston Conservatory its only U.S. stop

TROMP is widely regarded as one of the premiere solo percussion competitions in the world. While the biennial competition isn’t until 2014 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, TROMP representatives travel the world in the odd-numbered years to promote further awareness, called “TROMP Repertoire Days.” The Boston Conservatory is proud to announce it is TROMP’s sole stop in the U.S. The group will be on campus for two days to present three masterclasses, an informal performance and discussions on percussion, music-making and competition participation.

All events are FREE & open to the public
