The University of Central Arkansas Department of Music will host a concert featuring the students of trombone professor Justin Cook and UCA’s Trombone Studio on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 3 p.m. in the Snow Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.
The concert is free and open to the public.
Cook said the majority of the studio would perform, and the concert will feature pieces written specifically for solo trombone. The performance will feature modern American pieces and songs written for the Paris Conservatory in the 1940s.
“I am generally excited to hear all of the students perform and more specifically to perform repertoire that is challenging for them,” Cook said. “They are having such success preparing and growing as trombone players and musicians.”
All trombonist students at UCA perform in the BearBones Trombone Choir and also have the opportunity to audition for the Natural Slides Trombone Octet, which features the top six tenor trombonists and the top two bass trombonists at UCA.
Trombone students also have the opportunity to play in quartets and brass quintets as well as perform in the Conway Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Bear Marching Band and jazz ensembles.
