Trombone virtuoso, Scott Shelsta, entertains, delights and educates audiences across America.
After a 30-year career as the trombone soloist of the US Army Band, "Pershing's Own," Shelsta steps back in history to bring the thrill of 1890s America to the 21st century audience. Re-enacting the style of famous trombonists, Arthur Pryor (b. 1870) and Frederick Innes (b. 1854), he tells the story of a time and a way of life when large crowds would gather around the bandstand for an afternoon of dazzling musical entertainment by the concert bands of Hall, Gilmore, Liberati, Innes, Sousa, and Pryor, as well as their own town band.
Just as Trombonists Innes and Pryor did so many years ago, Shelsta's playing brings listeners to the edge of their seats and leaves audiences awestruck, speechless and ready to come back for more.
Scott Shelsta is a freelance musician and arranger in the Washington, DC area, playing, arranging, and soloing with brass ensembles, bands, orchestras, and choruses.
