Trombone Choir to Perform Fall Concert
JONESBORO – The Trombone Choir of Arkansas State University will perform in concert Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall. This Department of Music event is free and open for the public.
The program for this evening will include a nice variety of music, including “If Ye Love Me” by Thomas Tallis, arranged by Jack Wilds, “Marche Pontificale” by Domenico Bellando and arranged by Joshua Hauser, “Trombone Octet” by Gordon Jacob, and “Boneweek Fanfare #6” by Brad Edwards.
“The trombone is often considered an accompanying instrument in large ensembles, where other instruments such as trumpet, clarinet, and violin are regularly featured. Despite this reputation, the trombone is a beautifully lyrical instrument, capable of much more than they are often asked to perform in these settings. The trombone choir is a great way to showcase these more advanced skills acquired through applied trombone lessons each semester,” states Dr. Bruce Faske, director of the Trombone Choir.
“Through a combination of original compositions and arrangements from other musical settings including military band, jazz band and men’s choir, the sonic spectrum of trombone sound is put on full display for the audience. These concerts have been well attended for the past several years, and we look forward to playing on Nov. 1.”
