This is a consortium to commission a new work for trumpet and piano by composer James Stephenson in memory of Dr. Bob Romine. Bob passed away on Aug. 4, 2019 at age 88. He served as Band Director, Trumpet teacher, and Chair in the UNC Pembroke Department of Music for 22 years (and was playing trumpet really well at age 88). Each member of the consortium will contribute at least $50. They will receive a copy of the new work for trumpet and piano by James Stephenson with their name listed, exclusive rights to performance for a specified amount of time, and will have helped contribute a new piece of music to trumpet and piano literature. The intention is to "break even" with funding (to simply pay for the commission). Any extra funds raised beyond that will go to a scholarship fund in Dr. Romine's name.
