"I play trombone and let me tell you this takes a LOT of concentration and strength to pull this off."

Ryan Kronenberger, YouTube/Casey Miller, October 7,2018.



The trombone section of the Texas marching band practiced for months, and finally nailed a hair-raising routine that has them moving and playing, bowing under the sliders of each other's instruments.

The routine requires split-second timing and is potentially dangerous. A one-second lapse could see a musician struck in the face be the slider of a nearby trombonist's instrument.

Trombones have a telescoping slide mechanism that varies the length of the instrument to change the pitch, and it is this feature that makes the choreography the China Spring High School performed so dazzling.

Fans of the marching band weren't as surprised as most. The China Spring High School Marching Band has been a feature in the Texas Marching Band State Finals since 1991, and in 2016 placed 4th in the A division.

With their new routine, The China Spring High School Marching Band may be aiming for the big prize at the 2018 Texas Marching Band State Finals which will be held at the Alamodome, in San Antonio on November 5, 6, & 7, 2018.


HIgh schooler trombonist Michael Barski was selected to be a member of the Honor Orchestra of America.

The young man first picked up a trombone six years ago. Barski started to play trombone by chance when he joined the orchestra and saw that all the other kids wanted to play the trumpet.

He played throughout sixth and seventh grade, at first practicing for only about 30 minutes a week. Now he practices on average 5 to 6 hours a day.


His father. David Barski revealed that his son is essentially self-taught. He received some instruction at school but didn't have any individual lessons.

Barski now plays for the PCHS varsity jazz band as lead trombone and the All-State Orchestra.
