David Jackson in Faculty Trombone Recital

Jan. 27, 1998

David Jackson, assistant professor of trombone at Baylor University, will present a faculty recital at 2:00 p.m. Saturday in Roxy Grove Hall.

The program will open with "Piece in E-flat Minor" by French composer Joseph Guy Ropartz, with Jackson accompanied by John Cozza, assistant professor of piano. Then Jackson and Brian Marks, lecturer in piano, will play a 20th-century work--Eric Ewazen's Trombone Sonata.

Following intermission, the recital will resume with another composition from this century, "Bronze Veils" by Libby Larsen. This will feature Larry Vanlandingham, professor of percussion, and one of his students, Jeremy Brown, a junior from Bolivar, Mo.

Jackson's own arrangement for trombone choir of the "Aria" from "Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5" by Heitor Villa-Lobos will come next, with the nine-member Baylor Trombone Ensemble under the direction of Jeffrey Grogan, associate director of bands.

The recital will conclude with a performance by the Baylor Faculty Brass Quartet of John Gardner's "Theme and Variations." Besides Jackson, the other members of the quartet are Barry Hopper, associate professor of trumpet; trumpeter Vern Sielert, director of jazz ensembles; and Margaret Robinson, assistant professor of horn.

Jackson has been a member of the music faculty of Baylor since 1995. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees in trombone performance from the University of Michigan, and he has performed with such major orchestras as the Detroit Symphony and the Rochester Philharmonic.

This recital is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
