A faculty trombone recital by Joshua Hauser is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 22, at Tennessee Tech University’s Wattenbarger Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Paul Thurmond will accompany him on piano.

The performance will be dedicated to some of the classic works in the trombone repertoire. The well-known Concerto by Danish composer Launy Grondahl and the Sulek Sonata will anchor the concert. Hauser and Thurmond will also perform the Weber's Romanza Apassionata and Camille Saint-Sean’s Cavatine.

“The grand finale of the performance will be Arthur Pryor’s famous variation on The Blue Bells of Scotland, featuring a recent transcription that I made of Prior’s original cadenza taken from a recording of him as a soloist with the John Philip Sousa band,” said Hauser.

“This piece has been a test of skill for trombonists ever since Pryor performed it, and I look forward to sharing my interpretation with the audience,” he continued.

Wattenbarger Auditorium is located inside the Bryan Fine Arts Building and the recital is free and open to the general public.
