Hailed by Stereophile Magazine for “sound[ing] like 21st-century grandchildren of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding” (with his co-bandleader Chris Glassman) and praised by the International Trombone Associations Journal for his “virtuosity [and] melodic and harmonic mastery,” Altin Sencalar is in high demand across the country as a performer, educator, and composer. As an active performer, Altin has shared the stage, toured, and/or recorded with artists like DeeDee Bridgewater, Rodney Whitaker, Christian McBride and Michael Bublé. Altin exclusively performs on Yamaha Trombones and Euphoniums and is currently on the music faculty at Iona University in New Rochelle, NY.
