The Hudson Highlands Trombone Ensemble was formed in October of 2005.  It is comprised of members of the USMA Concert Band and Jazz Knights, and performs music from all genres.  Although primarily a quartet, they will add members to accommodate larger trombone works and percussion to facilitate their flexibility.

Post, in 1996.  Additionally, Marty is currently an adjunct faculty member at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, directing the brass and jazz ensembles.

He attended the Eastman School of Music, earning a Bachelor of Music in music theory, a Master of Music in performance and literature and a Master of Arts in music theory pedagogy. In 1999 and 2001, he was a featured performer at the Joe Alessi trombone seminars and twice finished runner-up in the Eastern Trombone Workshop’s International Solo Competition. SFC Wozniak has performed with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hudson Valley Philharmonic and the Eastman Wind Ensemble.

STAFF SERGEANT PHILIP STEHLY joined the Academy Band in the summer of 2005.  A native of Kansas City, he received a Bachelor of Music in trombone performance from Indiana University.  While at Indiana, he was the principal trombonist of the Wind Ensemble under the direction of Ray Cramer.  SSG Stehly has also performed with the IU New Music Ensemble, IU Symphony Orchestras and the Bloomington Camerata.  His principal teachers are Roger Oyster of the Kansas City Symphony, and Dee Stewart and Peter Ellefson of Indiana University.

STAFF SERGEANT CURT STARR joined the Academy Band in the fall of 2007. He is the newest member of the trombone section and is from the Pittsburgh, PA region.
