The UArts Brass Ensemble is one of the premier classical chamber ensembles in the School of Music, promoting traditional brass ensemble & percussion literature. Our concert this spring will feature UArts faculty member and renowned bass trombonist Barry McCommon performing Ernst Sacshe's Concertino for Bass Trombone. Other works include selections from Copland and Dvorak.
Barry McCommon is a musician that defies categorization. Having begun his career while still enrolled at the Curtis Institute of Music, his versatility has earned him respect as a “crossover” artist, performing in venues ranging from Lincoln Center to the House of Blues with anyone from the Royal Ballet, to the Jaco Pastorius Big Band, to R&B legend Aretha Franklin.
