Students to perform with visiting trumpet professor

Audience members will be treated to an upbeat evening during the Sept. 8 presentation of Fanfares, Marches and Other Literature for Brass Choir at UNT, featuring the UNT Teaching Fellow Brass Choir with percussion and Visiting Professor of Trumpet Allen Vizzutti. This concert will be conducted by Assistant Director of Wind Studies Nicholas Williams

“Performing with Allen Vizzutti is a great experience for our students," Williams said. "The audience will be treated to a top notch professional quality concert while students get the opportunity to perform with one of the best of the best.”

The program includes Five Episodes for Trumpet and Brass Choir, one of the most thrilling Allen Vizzuttishowpieces for the trumpet, written by Vizzutti, right, and Jeff Tyzik, principal pops conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra; The Call: The Brass Presented, a piece written in 2005 by Dutch percussionist and composer Nick Woud; as well as arrangements of music by Berlioz, Strauss, Wagner and Verdi published by Kagarice Brass Editions.

UNT trombone professor, Dr. Vern Kagarice, who started Kagarice Brass Editions, provided sheet music for the musicians and intended to conduct the concert. Due to illness, he has passed the baton to Williams, the talented conductor and fellow UNT faculty member. The concert will be dedicated to Kagarice for his 30 years of service teaching trombone and directing trombone choirs at UNT.
