Trombone choirs will slide together again Tuesday, Dec. 2, in Powell

Posted November 17, 2008

P O W E L L,  W y o. - A choir of trombones will herald in the Christmas season at Northwest College when the Big Horns perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, in Hinckley Library on the Northwest College campus in Powell.

The Big Horns Trombones and Northwest College Trombones will once again slide together in their fifth annual Christmas concert. The joint ensemble plans an evening of 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 Parmer of Lovell and Mike Masterson of Powell.

Northwest College student musicians joining them for the evening are Spencer Nelson of Cody, Will Crompton of Evanston, Willy Parmer of Lovell, Dylon Eckhardt of Powell and Adam Small of Loveland, Colo.

 Cody High School will be represented by Dave Ginger and Klarissa Parduba.

Admission is free.
