Bass Trombone

About Billy Orton:

Since realizing that he would likely not be able to make a living as a basketball player, Billy followed his calling into church music and has served leading churches in several states as Minister of Music. He has been able to stay active as a brass player throughout his ministerial career and has also served as a teacher, clinician, conductor, performer and leader with Baptist All-State groups, choral and instrumental conferences, and musical organizations at all levels (church, community, school and professional). He is the Minister of Music and Worship at First Baptist Church, Huntsville, a position he has held since 1998. He finds time for other activities in the artistic community of our city through his roles as Artistic Director of the Huntsville Community Chorus Association, Chorus Master for the HSO, Bass Trombonist with Redstone Brass and The Brass Band of Huntsville, and as an adjunct faculty member in the UAH Music Department.
