The trombone choirs of Baylor University and the University of Texas at Austin will join forces for a concert at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in Roxy Grove Hall. The Baylor trombones perform under the direction of Dr. Kevin Chiarizzio, assistant professor of trombone. The University of Texas trombone choir is led by Dr. Nathaniel Brickens, professor of music.

The Baylor trombone choir will begin the concert with four pieces: the Jay Friedman setting of Andrea Gabrieli's Ricercare del 12 tono, William Presser's Chaconne and March, Wayne Baxley's Chorale in E major and Chiarizzio's own arrangement of Bob Kauflin's Glory to God.

Edvard Grieg's Landerkennung, as arranged by Leon Brown, will open the University of Texas trombone choir's set, which will be followed by performances of Jan Koetsier's Concerto Grosso, jazz legend Manny Albam's Geological Survey and the Steven Frank setting of Frank Luther's Variations on "Barnacle Bill, the Sailor."

Both trombone choirs will be on stage to close the concert. They will perform Franz Biebl's Ave Maria and Eric Crees' arrangement of the familiar march Seventy-Six Trombones from Meredith Willson's musical The Music Man.

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