by Richard Veit
Nathaniel H. Dickey, lecturer in trombone at Baylor University, will present a faculty recital at 6 p.m. Thursday in Roxy Grove Hall. He will be assisted by Brian Marks, lecturer in piano; John Cozza, assistant professor of piano; and conductor Jeffrey Grogan, associate director of bands.
Also taking part will be four students from Dickey's trombone studio--senior Mac Mahaffey, sophomore Dean Surface, junior John Czerwieski and freshman Henry McDougall.
The program will open with the Trombone Sonata of 1993 by Eric Ewazen, a three-movement work with Marks at the piano.
Dickey then will play the Trombone Concerto of 18th-century Austrian composer Georg Christoph Wagenseil with Cozza assisting.
Following a short intermission, Dickey will perform Arne Nordheim's descriptive trombone piece from 1980, The Hunting of the Snark, followed by one of his own compositions from 1995, Trespass.
Concluding the program will be Dickey's arrangement of five movements from Johann Sebastian Bach's Cello Suite No. 1.
