Richard Ashby

I Began playing Trombone in 1957 at age 11. I attended The University Of Miami courtesy of a Henry Fillmore Band scholarship while majoring in Zoology/Marine Biology. I continued graduate studies at CSUS until service in the USAF interrupted my studies. Returning to Ca. I completed degrees in biology/marine science as well as art/photography and spending 25 years as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist before again unpacking my trombone. Besides occupying my retirement performing in three bands, I also find time for photography, creating computer art, attending to a greenhouse populated with several hundred species of exotic orchids and amassing a CD collection containing over 500 discs of symphonic band music alone. (Did you realize that there have been over 210 original symphonies written specifically for the Symphonic band?)
