CU to Present Trombone Concert and Clinic

by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

Cedarville, Ohio-Columbus Symphony Orchestra Principal Trombonist Andrew Millat and Columbus pianist Dianne Frazer Cross will be in concert at Cedarville University on Tuesday, October 24 at 7 p.m. Their theme will be “Twentieth Century Beginnings and Endings.”

The concert, which is sponsored by Kincaid’s Music and the Cedarville University Department of Music and Art, will begin with the rhythms of rag time from Jacques Casterede’s Sonatina and end with a powerful, lyrical theme from Suler’s Sonata, subtitled “Vox Gabrieli.”

Prior to the concert, at 5 p.m., Millat will offer a clinic for trombone students, focusing on contest pieces chosen from the Ohio Music Education Association’s solo and ensemble adjudicated event music list. “This will be a great opportunity for high school trombonists to preview several solos they might want to pick for contest,” said Millat, who has taught trombone at Cedarville since 2001.

The clinic and concert are both free and open to the public and will be held in the Bolthouse Center for Music Recital Hall in Cedarville University’s Dixon Ministry Center. For information, call 937-766-7728.
