Bass trombonist Chris Allen is a member of the Gustavus Class of 2014 and is a graduate student in performance at the U. He will be joined by trombonists Ian Gregory, Daniel Hinman and Clint Wyatt for this performance.

They’ll open with Andrew Fox’s Fanfare for Trombones, a Michael Levin arrangement of Claude Debussy’s Trois Chansons, and an arrangement of Michael Praetorius’s Renaissance Dance Suite. The program continues with an Hiroyuki Odagiri arrangement of Contrapunctus IX by Johann Sebastian Bach, Poéme d’Amour by James Stephenson and Eric Ewazen’s Myths and Legends. The quartet will conclude the concert with a Carolyn Johns’ arrangement of George Gershwin’s They Can’t Take That Away From Me.
