Low notes from trombones, tubas and euphoniums will be the featured music during the University of Nebraska at Kearney Low Brass Chamber Music Recital on Friday, Feb. 25.
The recital, which is free and open to the public, will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall of the UNK Fine Arts Building.
“It is called a chamber music recital in that the program consists of music for small groups of players, where each player has their own part.,” said Dr. Seth Fletcher, UNK low brass lecturer. “This is different from a large band or choir performance where there are many musicians on stage at once and many playing or singing the same part.”
Under the direction of Dr. Fletcher, the low brass recital will consist of “O Morn of Beauty,” “Yankee Doodle,” “Pop Suite” and more.
“The term ‘chamber music’ comes from the practice of this type of music being played in ‘palace chambers’ or small salons in private homes and not in a concert hall,” Dr. Fletcher said. “In performance practice today, it is common to play chamber music in a formal concert hall setting as well as in smaller, more intimate venues.”
