Faculty Recital Series: Orebonians Trombone Quartet at WU in #SalemOR

Featuring Orebonians Trombone Quartet Recital.

February 11th  7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Location: Hudson Hall, Willamette University

With its clear sound and timbral versatility, the trombone lends itself to chamber music-making like few other instruments. Particularly when performed in ensemble, trombones have a distinctive vocal quality giving them the capacity to achieve a profound expressiveness and sublimity. Additionally, due to the instrument’s design for power and directness, a trombone ensemble can equally evoke the heroic, the tragic, the terrible, . . . and of course, the ridiculous.

Orebonians is a trombone quartet comprised of four of the region’s most distinguished trombonists and collegiate educators. One of Portland’s foremost jazz/classical cross-over musicians, Lars Campbell appears regularly with the Oregon Symphony and Ballet Theater, and has recorded with Pink Martini and co-founded the Portland Jazz Orchestra. Lars is on faculty with Clackamas Community College where he teaches trombone and directs multiple ensembles. Henry Henniger performs throughout the region as a soloist and chamber musician and is currently principal trombonist of the Eugene Symphony, Portland Opera, and Oregon Ballet Theater. Henry is the Assistant Professor of Trombone at University of Oregon. Carson Keeble has held membership in the Colorado Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and New Mexico Symphony, and continues to perform frequently as a guest with organizations throughout the country. Carson is currently the low brass instructor at Willamette University and the trombone instructor at Oregon State University. Charles Reneau is the current Bass Trombonist for the Oregon Symphony Orchestra and was previously the Bass Trombonist in the Honolulu Symphony. Charles is a trombone instructor at Portland State University.

They will perform works by G. F. Handel, Johann Strauss, Joey Sellers, Frigyes Hidas, and others.

This concert is free of charge, however donations to the Music Scholarship program would be welcome.

Suggested donation: $8/adults, $5/students.
