Solo with Rocky Mountain Brassworks!

I am excited to be performing Bert Appermont’s “Colors” for Trombone, as a guest soloist with the Rocky Mountain Brassworks, for their Valentine’s Day concert on Sunday February 17th at 2pm in the Broomfield Auditorium. The piece has four movements that each represent characteristics commonly associated with a color: Yellow represents inspiration and wisdom, Red represents passion and courage, Blue represents dreams and peace, and Green represents hope and harmony. Tickets are available on Rocky Mountain Brassworks’ website - don’t miss my second-ever performance as a featured soloist with a brass band!
