Trombone players around the globe celebrate their talents and instruments the week of April 6, and Tennessee Tech University musicians are no different.
As part of the 12th annual International Trombone Week, the TTU trombone choir will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 10, and again at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 13. The performances will be the group’s first since returning from their invited concert with the Atlanta trombone ensemble and the Georgia State trombone choir in Atlanta.
The April 10 concert will include works by John Williams, Eric Ewazen, Domenico Bellando, Flor Peeters, J.S. Bach and TTU alumnus Kenyon Wilson. There will also be performances of new arrangements for trombone choir by senior music majors Jeremy Brown, of Elmwood, Tenn., and Andrew Petty, of Riddleton, Tenn. It has been a goal of TTU trombone professor Joshua Hauser for more than a decade to expand the trombone choir repertoire.
The concert will be streamed live online at www.tntech.edu/music/live.
The April 13 performance will be a solo recital by trombone student Daniel Riggsbee, a senior from Cookeville.
Both concerts will be in TTU’s Wattenbarger Auditorium. They are free and open to the public.
Wattenbarger Auditorium is in the Bryan Fine Arts Building, 1150 N. Dixie. Ave.
