MSM welcomes trombonists Sasha Romero and Demian Austin to the MSM brass faculty

Sasha Romero and Demian Austin, both principal trombonists with the MET Opera Orchestra, will be joining the MSM brass department faculty beginning in academic year 2023–2024.

MSM Executive Vice President and Provost Joyce Griggs made the announcement to the MSM community this week: “It is with great delight we share the news about two new faculty appointments. Sasha Romero and Demian Austin — both members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra — will join the MSM faculty this Fall 2023.

“Earlier this semester, I had the opportunity to observer the teaching demonstrations of both,” the Provost continued, “and I have spent time speaking with them about their educational philosophy and perspectives. They each expressed dedication to fostering a rich educational environment that values creative risk-taking and to expanding our musical canon to be more inclusive as key ingredients to artistic excellence.”
