Trombone choir "brasses" up the season Dec. 7

Posted November 30, 2006

P O W E L L, W y o. - The Big Horns Trombones and the Northwest College Trombones invite the public to their second annual Trombone Christmas Thursday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hinckley Library Amphitheater in Powell.

The joint ensemble plans an evening of Christmas music that can only be properly delivered by large trumpets (the literal translation of the word "trombone"). One of Beethoven's favorite ensembles, the trombone choir's history dates back to the Renaissance.

The Big Horns Trombones, a community troupe, features the talents of Jack Nauman of Basin, Bob Wellwood of Cody, John Henderson of Greybull, Rick and Willy Parmer of Lovell, and Mike Masterson of Powell.

Northwest College student musicians joining them for the evening are Will Crompton of Evanston, Dustin Hunt of Laurel, Mont., and Ben Palmer of Troy, Mont.

Admission is free.
