This concert we feature one of our community’s educators and instrumentalists, Rebecca Ford. Ms. Ford is the Lecturer of Trombone at Pacific Lutheran University and is an active trombonist and teacher in the Puget Sound region. She can be heard with ensembles such as: the PLU Lyric Brass Quintet, Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Tacoma Opera, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and many others.
In addition to her responsibilities at PLU, Ms. Ford is on the faculty of Evergreen Music Festival, Vivace Chamber Players Organization, Cornish College of the Arts, Tacoma Community College, and has a vibrant private studio for trombonists of all ages. Ms. Ford received her degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she studied under the tutelage of Steve Witser and Richard Stout. When she’s not holding a trombone, she enjoys gardening, hiking, fermenting food (on purpose), and going on adventures with her friends and family.
