POWELL, Wyo. - The Northwest College Music Department glides into spring with a trombone recital at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 26, in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium.

This perennial event showcases the combined Northwest Trombones and Big Horns Trombone Ensemble.

The evening begins with Marcello’s “Sonata in F” featuring Jerry Stott, Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise” with Hayden Woods, and Handel’s “Allegro in F minor” with John Henderson.

Small group performances include the NWC Student Brass Quintet performing “American Patrol,” “That’s a Plenty” and “Chorale,” followed by the NWC Trombone Quartet’s rendition of “I Believe.”

The Northwest College Trombone Choir and Big Horns Trombone Ensemble will take the spotlight and close the evening with “Transformations,” “Elegy for Eldred,” “Tower Music” and other selections.

Performers include Jack Nauman of Basin; Jerry Stott of Green River; Mike Conner, John Henderson and Ashley Hopkin of Greybull; Willy Parmer of Lovell; Mike Masterson of Powell; and Hayden Woods of Manhattan, Mont.

Groups are under the direction of NWC’s low brass instructor Rick Parmer, with some accompaniments by Tim Schoessler. Parmer encourages the community to come listen to these horns in their final concert of the season.
