"TROMBONE SECTION SUICIDE ROUTINE"
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.
PERFECT TIMING, PERFECT RHYTHM
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.
