In an effort to promote new compositions for the trombone quartet, the Guidonian Hand created a Composer-in-Residence program.

We are excited to announce that Alex Weiser will join Jeremy Howard Beck as Composer-in-Residence for the 2012-13 Season.  The Hand will premiere the first movement of Alex’s quartet this August and the rest of the work will be premiered in installments throughout the course of the coming season.  You can learn more about Alex here.

Stay tuned for more information.










New York-based composer Jeremy Howard Beck was our first Composer-in-Residence. The Guidonian Hand premiered his quartet “Awakening” on April, 12 2010 in Paul Hall at Juilliard. They are looking forward to his second quartet to be premiered at the Eastern Trombone Workshop in March of 2013.
