Portland trombone group to represent US on international stage

Posted: Updated:

The Rose City Trombones never thought they would travel overseas to play their favorite instrument. But now, the local group will represent the United States at Beijing International Tourism Festival in China.

The invitation of a lifetime fell into their laps after another group recommended the musicians.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity. The festival is designed to encourage locals to come hear international performers. To say it’s exciting is an understatement,” said cofounder Jon Ohnstad.

The Rose City Trombones perform across the country and have played the National Anthem for the Portland Blazers, the Hillsboro Hops and the Portland Winterhawks. The 18th annual festival is from Oct. 1st -5th.
