Our next performance

1. We are currently working on a program of antiphonal works written or arranged for trombone choir by Gabrielli, De Lasso, Palestrina, and others to perform in the San Jose City Hall Rotunda and possibly the Episcopalian or Catholic Cathedrals downtown.  The group has also selected the following pieces to perform:
  • Bach Fugue in C Minor
  • Beethoven's Allegretto Scherzando from the 8th Symphony
  • Salsealo by Vinicio Meza
  • A jazz arrangement of Brahm's Hungarian Dance by Robert Elkjer
  • And Washington Post!
We are in need of mid voices (the less difficult parts) so students are encouraged to attend.

2.  Imagine performing a piece like this in a domed environment instead of a stage like at Columbia University:
Come join us Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Santa Clara High School Bandroom!
