S.E. Shires Company Announces New Partnership with Alessi

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • December 2, 2019

The S.E. Shires Company, a division of Eastman Music Company, has announced that they have formed a new partnership with  Joseph Alessi, world-class soloist, pedagogue, and principal trombone of the New York Philharmonic.

This new relationship brings S.E. Shires advanced instrument design and manufacturing into close partnership with Alessi’s experience and musical genius. S.E. Shires and its team of dedicated designers and craftsmen will begin producing a line of products with Alessi. The mutual goal is to continue offering exceptional musical instruments and accessories to a wide array of brass musicians and dealers throughout the world.

Samantha Lane, director of Sales and Marketing, commented: “I am so excited to welcome Mr. Joseph Alessi to the S.E. Shires family. His virtuosic playing, orchestral career, and pedagogical expertise is legendary. This truly presents a unique opportunity for our company and brands to take yet another step forward in the brass and winds world.”

On the recent partnership, Alessi remarked: “I am very pleased to announce that I will be joining the Eastman Shires team. Why? Because I have fallen in love with a great trombone. After rigorous testing I have found an instrument that is easier to play and also fits the sound concept in my mind. That sound has been embodied in the Shires-Alessi signature horn. Thanks very much to everyone at Eastman Shires and I look forward to many years of collaboration!”
