Byron Herrington, Second Trombone of the New Mexico Philharmonic, had been a member of the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra trombone section since 1981. In January 1998 he became the Director of Wind, Brass, and Percussion Studies at Albuquerque’s Thomas Jefferson Middle School, and shortly thereafter joined the Albuquerque Youth Symphony Program as co-conductor of the Junior Symphony. He has been Principal Trombone of the Music in the Mountains summer festival in Colorado since 1991. In 1986 he received a degree in music education from UNM. Before that he attended the University of Oklahoma, studying trombone with Irvin Wagner, conducting with Guy Fraser Harrison, music theory and analysis with Gail Boyd DeStwolinski, and composition and orchestration with Michael Hennagin. He has studied trombone with Jay Friedman, Frank Crisafulli, Edward Kleinhammer, Arnold Jacobs of the Chicago Symphony, Ralph Sauer of the L.A. Philharmonic, and Joseph Alessi of the New York Philharmonic. Byron regularly conducts the NMSO in tour, youth, and other concerts, and maintains a small studio of private students. He has two dogs, Chico and Lucy, and enjoys movies, reading, and the occasional driving trip to interesting places in New Mexico.
