The annual trombone event, Frühling Posaunen (Spring Trombones), was started in spring 1989 by John Marcellus, Eastman School of Music; Harold Reynolds, Ithaca College; and Penn State’s Mark L. Lusk. The idea was to gather the trombone students from the three academic institutions together on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) to share their music and ideas. Over the years, the event has featured a diverse array of guest artists, and guest ensembles from many other fine schools of music. Thousands of trombonists and guests have enjoyed the variety of music presented at the major concerts, and especially the grand finale which often combines all the participants.
