About TECSO, the Trombones of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra:
You see them quietly seated at the back of one of Connecticut’s premier symphonic organizations, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra (ECSO). That is until the conductor cues their glorious voices to be raised. Called the “boiler room of the ECSO” by the New London Day for their consistent excellence in major symphonic works, The Trombones of the ECSO (TECSO) now come to the recital stage.
TECSO has performed recitals across the state of Connecticut. The ensemble has performed at the Fountain Music Series in Ridgefield, CT; Hop River Chamber Music Festival in Willimantic and Storrs, CT; Mystic Seaport’s Arts On the Quad Series; Stonington, CT’s La Grua Center; the Musical Arts Society of Branford, CT; the Wheeler Library Artist Series, and at The Universities of New Haven and Southern Connecticut State.
The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from Bach to the Beatles. A performance by TECSO takes the listener on a journey to explore the broad range of sonorities that can only be accomplished by the voices of four trombones.
