Blair School of Music 2012 Fall Concerts

Tuesday, October 23 at  8 p.m.
Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

Faculty Recital
Jeremy Wilson, trombone

Vienna to Vanderbilt

New faculty member Jeremy Wilson comes to Blair directly from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, where he has been the sole American member since 2007. Returning to his roots (he-€™s a Tennessee native), Wilson presents a debut faculty recital that traces his musical journey thus far. The program will include favorites by Viennese composers, important works he played while in Vienna, and significant pieces that have marked turning points throughout his career. A diverse musical program that will be intensely personal and biographical, and a fitting introduction to one of Blair-€™s freshest faces.

Sponsored by an anonymous friend of the Blair School of Music.
