Dr. Martin McCain started the spring semester with several residencies, including the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Southwestern University and the University of Texas – San Antonio where he presented masterclasses, performed recitals and taught lessons. He performed in the pit orchestra for “Cinderella the Musical” and also performed a series of school concerts with the Austin Chamber Music Center. In February, he hosted the 6th Annual Texas State Trombone Symposium, which featured trombone artists across the world and included the final round of the Conn-Selmer Tenor Trombone, Edwards Bass Trombone and Rath Jazz Trombone Solo competitions, which are competitive on a national level. A week later, McCain hosted guest artist Christopher Davis from Northwestern University.
McCain’s CD “Trombone Czar” was featured recently on Toronto’s CKWR and Austin’s KMFA and KUT radio stations.
