Warner, trombonist, joined the School of Music faculty in 2002, where he currently serves as a professor of music and chairperson for Lee’s Department of Music Performance Studies.

Apart from teaching applied trombone and music history at Lee, Warner has performed with the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera (CSO) as principal trombone since 1985. He has also performed with the Dayton (Ohio) Philharmonic, the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, the Evansville Philharmonic, and the Northern Kentucky Symphony. From 1986 to 1997, Warner was a member of the King’s Brass, a nine-member sacred brass summer touring ensemble, with which he has recorded four albums.

He earned both his doctorate and master’s degree from University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and his bachelor’s degree from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Carver, bass trombonist, serves on the faculty of Dalton State College and has also taught at Lee University, Southern Adventist University, and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He has performed with the CSO at the historic Tivoli Theater in Chattanooga and has appeared with the Evansville, Huntsville, and Nashville symphony orchestras, among others. Carver has also toured China and Japan as a member of the Hollywood Film Orchestra.

Carver performs classically, but has also appeared with a wide variety of artists in different genres, such as ELO, Bela Fleck, Al Jarreau, Randy Newman, Bernadette Peters, Doc Severinsen, The Spinners, and The Four Tops.

A graduate of both Georgia State University and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Carver's principal teachers have included Jim Bermann, Richard Brady, Dale Hair, and Keith Sanders.
