Betty Glover (b. 1923) was a truly unique pioneer who had a significant impact on women playing in the orchestra, especially in the brass section. The goal of this document is to illuminate the career accomplishments of Betty Glover, one of the first female trombonists in a major symphony.
Glover was the Principal Trombonist with the Kansas City Philharmonic from 1944-1948 and Bass Trombonist with the Cincinnati Symphony from 1952-1985. In addition to her fruitful orchestra career, Glover was also a successful brass pedagogue and conductor. Glover taught at Otterbein College from 1950-1952 and at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music from 1952-1992. Glover taught trombone and euphonium lessons, conducted the CCM Brass Choir and established an orchestra brass repertoire class during her teaching tenure. Glover was remembered as a pioneer who paved the way for future generations of female brass musicians.
