UNK– Low notes from trombones, euphoniums and tubas will fill the air during the Low Brass Recital at the University of Nebraska at Kearney on Thursday, Nov. 12.

The recital, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall, which is located in the UNK Fine Arts building.

According to Dr. Seth Fletcher, UNK low brass lecturer, the recital will consist exclusively of music composed and arranged for various combinations of trombones, euphoniums and tubas. The recital will be performed in a combination of duets, quartets and a trio.

“One of the interesting things about the program is that it will feature music that was not originally composed for these instruments– such as selections from Mozart and Bach, as well as music by Tommy Pederson and William Presser that was composed for these instruments,” Dr. Fletcher said. “The wide variety of pieces means that there’s something for all tastes. Some of the music is serious, and some is decidedly silly.”

Dr. Fletcher will be performing along with 14 UNK students. The students are listed below, alphabetically by hometown, along with their instruments:

BASSETT– Cameron Scheibe, tenor trombone
BROKEN BOW– Michael Crawford, tuba
GRAND ISLAND– Eric Rempe, tenor trombone; and Jacob Ronne, tenor trombone

and Lee Rushing, tuba
MINDEN-Jonathan Hunzeker, tenor trombone
