Before heading to the DC area, McCain gave a masterclass for the Round Rock High School Trombone Choir and coordinated masterclasses with Texas State applied faculty for the Rowlett High School Band program.

McCain and his chamber ensemble, the Minor 4th Trombone Quartet, were also guest soloists with the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra as a part of the quartet’s 10-year anniversary. Additionally, McCain was invited again to serve on the TMEA audition selection committee and will choose the All-State bass trombone repertoire for the 2016-2017 year.
