Lee University Trombone Set
The Lee University Trombone Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Doug Warner, will perform a concert on Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.
Featured works will include selections such as Chris M. Sharpe’s “Apogee Fanfare”, Bill Reichenbach’s “Scarborough Fair” and Ralph Carmichael’s “A Quiet Place”.
“The trombone has been said to be an instrument that very closely resembles the human voice in timbre,” Dr. Warner said. “Perhaps this is why composers have traditionally used the trombone section to accompany and sustain choral ensembles. Their seamless sound allows for a wonderful, rich blend of tonal colors.
The Lee Trombone Ensemble is made up of trombonists from Lee University who are music majors, as well as a few from outside the School of Music. Since the fall of 2021, the group has also welcomed several graduates and members of the community.
“We hope the audience will be inspired and energized by the music we have chosen for this concert,” Dr. Warner said.
Dr. Warner joined the faculty of the School of Music in 2002. He is currently Director of Applied Studies in Music and teaches applied trombone, music history, and gateway for music majors. In addition to his employment with Lee, Dr. Warner has been principal trombonist of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera since 1985.
The concert is free, ticketless and open to the public. The live stream will be available on https://leeu.live/.
