The Ithaca College Trombone Troupe has been a Student Government Association Club since 1982. The alliterative name of the ensemble was coined by then Assistant Professor of Trombone, Dr. Paul Hunt. Although Tom Everett (’65) has noted that a trombone choir was formed during his student days at IC in the 60’s called the Finger Lakes Trombone Choir, it apparently had no official connection with the College, some members being non-students from the area. Nonetheless, it appears there is historical evidence of a trombone ensemble in existence at Ithaca College for over forty years.
