SFA Wind Ensemble Performs at TMEA

Proud of these students who performed as part of the “best brass section SFA has ever taken to TMEA”. The concert was truly phenomenal, so much so, that one of the players fainted onto the floor and couldn’t get up. IMG_9464

Trombone Choir Concert 4/4/17

SFA’s Trombone Choir to perform eclectic program


NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Trombone Choir at Stephen F. Austin State University will celebrate International Trombone Week with a concert showcasing various music styles at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.


The concert will feature a combination of trombone quartets and trombone choir, according to Dr. Deb Scott, professor of trombone in the SFA School of Music and the choir’s director.


The quartets will perform traditional classical music, including Anton Bruckner’s Motet: Virga Jesse, Daniel Speer’s Sonata, J.S. Bach’s Fugue in G Minor arranged by Ralph Sauer, and “In Memorium” by Raymond Premru.


The trombone choir will perform an eclectic program of mostly classical music, including Fanfare for 8 Trombones by Shelley Gurin, composer from “Praise the Lord” by Handel and Hopson, arranged by Jon Bohls and Canzona for Eight Trombones by Walter S. Hartley.


The group will conclude its performance with an exciting Brazilian piece called “Trombocueca,” which is a new piece of music by N. Ernesto Cortes composed for the “Trombonanza” conference in Argentina last summer where Scott was a featured artist.


Marking its 15th year, International Trombone Week is an annual worldwide celebration of the trombone. Since its beginning in 2003, the observance has featured thousands of trombonists creating and participating in grassroots events and performances all over the world.


Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS or visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu.
