'76 Trombones'

Thursday - 4/19/2012, 5:36pm  ET

Join WTOP, Arena Stage and FAME (The Foundation for the Advancement of Music & Education) as we attempt to set a world record for the ‘Largest Trombone Ensemble' on Friday, June 1 at the Washington Nationals Park!

More than 500 trombonists will gather to play ‘76 Trombones' in celebration of Arena Stage's production of The Music Man. Maestro Larry Goldberg has created a new orchestration of the beloved musical's signature song that's divided into 7 parts for trombone players of varying levels of ability.

Would you like to join the celebration and help set a world record? REGISTER today through FAME and you will receive the sheet music provided by Arena Stage, an information packet with logistics regarding June 1, event contacts and more.

In addition, the Nationals have created a special ticket price for participants and their families, following the world record attempt, you can enjoy the Nats vs. Braves game starting at 7:05 pm.
