Trombone quartet The Guidonian Hand will be the next presentation in the Saint Vincent College Concert Series at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30 in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center.
Members of the quartet include Mark Broschinsky, William Lang, Sebastian Vera and James Rogers.
Their program will include Three Equale by Ludwig van Beethoven, Requiem by Michael Haydn, Doppelfugue and other works for organ by Johann Albrechtsberger, Sonata for 4 by Johann Joseph Fux, Notturno by C.D. von Dittersdorf, Piece for Organ by Franz Xaver Süssmayr, Sonata by Georg Christoph Wagenseil and a holiday medley.
Acclaimed by The New York Times for their “expertly played” performances displaying “meaty lower brass textures,” The Guidonian Hand is New York City’s leading modern trombone collective.
An exhilarating addition to New York’s vibrant music scene, the Hand has performed extensively in the New York metropolitan area at such venues as the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, Le Poisson Rouge, The Stone, The Juilliard School, Galapagos Art Space, Manhattan School of Music, The Tank, Mannes College of Music, New York University, Roulette, INTAR Theater and the Gershwin Hotel’s New Music series. They also appeared as guest artists at the 2010 International Trombone Festival in Austin, Texas.
Upcoming engagements include appearances in Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and New York. In addition to modern literature, The Guidonian Hand gives a fresh voice to classical repertoire, situating art music of the past on a continuum with music written today. Programs frequently reflect eclectic and wide-ranging musical interests, from Bach to Mozart to Thelonius Monk and beyond. Further information is available on their website, www.trombonehand.com
