Samantha Keehn has been principal trombone with the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra for over seven years.
She is the low brass professor of music at Augustana College in Rock Island and has an early memory teaching herself “Lightly Row” an Alberti bass on her aunt’s piano.
Although she has performed music by countless composers, she most enjoys music by composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The 2017 symphony performance of “Christmas with the Symphony” holds a special memory for Ms. Keehn. She was “able to have my young family here for the concert.”
