VIRTUAL TROMBONE WORKSHOP
In response to the Covid-19 Crisis, Lauren founded the Virtual Trombone Workshop. Seeking to connect musicians during a time of isolation, VTW created an international community of trombonists who came together to support each other and their art. Participants in the first VTW described the event as “a highlight in dark times,” “truly a pleasure to participate in,” and “so much fun!”
