Arts & Entertainment WCU presents faculty brass recital Sept. 25

Western Carolina University’s School of Music will present a free faculty brass recital at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, in the recital hall of Coulter Building.

The event, part of the Catamount Concert Series, will feature solo performances by Daniel Cherry on euphonium, Travis Bennett on horn, Michael Schallock on tuba and Bradley Ulrich and Larry Black on trumpet.

Cherry will be featured in Friedebald Grafe’s “Grand Concerto,” a Romantic-style piece written for trombone but suited for the tone quality and character of the euphonium.

Bennett will solo in Emmanuel Chabrier’s “Larghetto,” which was first performed in 1878 and originally written for horn and orchestra. Cast as the French horn equivalent of an operatic aria, “Larghetto” was discovered among the self-taught composer’s effects after his death.

Schallock will be featured in Robert Jager’s “Concerto for Bass Tuba,” Ulrich in Paul Hindemith’s “Sonate,” and Black in Johann Fasch’s “Concerto in D.”

Bradley Martin, associate professor, will accompany the musicians on piano.
