World premier

So I’ve been holding down the Bass Trombone chair in the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra all week while it’s been raining and non-Spring like outside.

Schumann Symphony #2 gives an opportunity for us trombones to get into some merry making but what is fun this week is a World Premier work for 2 Pianos and orchestra called Double Rainbow. Commissioned for our guest artists – Michael Shinn and Jessica Chow Shinn – the work is composed by Juilliard School of Music faculty member Thomas Cabaniss.

A colorful telling of his inspiration from seeing Double Rainbows while on a tropical vacation, the work is a play not only on the imagery of the Double Rainbow but the juxtaposition of the double elements within the orchestra and 2 pianos.

Almost a sellout, get your tickets now.

See you from the back row.
