There's a new voice leading The U.S. Army Blues jazz ensemble and it belongs to a woman. Crossing the unspoken "gender barrier" Staff Sergeant Liesl Whitaker recently won the position as lead trumpet. In a field dominated by men Whitaker is the first female (with the exception of some vocalists and pianists) to play in any of the Washington D.C. special military jazz bands.
Directory of Professional Women Trombonists compiled by Monique Buzzarté Note: for archival purposes only - this is not a current listing. Maureen Horgan began to collect the names of professional women trombonists in 1994 in order to contact them with information about the International Women's Trombone Choir which performed at the International Trombone Workshop in 1995. Maureen is interested in obtaining biographical information about these trombonists, as well as addresses and telephone numbers. Contact Maureen if you can help her out. Names are only linked at the request of the individual.
