Concert #2-June 21: Celebrating 20 years of… Soloists
Soloists remain an important part of the U City Summer Band repertoire – they add vibrant and unique sounds to classic and contemporary music. Soloists from the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, freelance instrumentalists from the St. Louis area and out of town guests have been featured with the band over the last 20 years. On June 21, Thomas Jostlein, Assistant Principal French Horn from the St. Louis Symphony and Tom Bruce, a freelance Trumpet soloist and member of the St. Louis Wind Symphony, will be featured in Herbert Clarke’s Cousins - a duet for trumpet and trombone. Also featured will be a Brass Quintet made up of members from the band and the saxophone section will be featured in The Saxophone Rag.
