Half and Half: UNM Faculty Concert Series

Speaking musically, the trombone has many functions. It works great in an orchestral setting by creating a sense of emotion. In small ensembles it can define the tone of a work. As a solo instrument in chamber music and jazz, its formidability has been proven over the years. This year’s UNM Music Department Faculty Concert Series features trombone professor Chris Buckholz tomorrow night at 7:30pm at Keller Hall (203 Cornell SE) in the Fine Arts Center. A small, comfortable and acoustically perfect concert hall across the way from Popejoy, Keller offers performances by notable practitioners of the musical arts.

On Friday Buckholz will perform both art music and jazz there. He’ll be joined by cohorts University of Northern Iowa Associate Professor of Piano Sean Botkin, John Marchiando and Paul Gonzales on trumpet, Glenn Kostur handling saxophone, pianist Stuart MacAskie, Michael Olivola on bass, Arnaldo Acosta on drums and percussionist Scott Ney. The program includes recitals of works by Arthur Frackenpohl, Marco Bordogni, Joseph Jongen, Paul Hindemith, Clay Smith and the featured trombonist himself. Tickets range from $5 to $12.
