Music of the Night | Trombone Recital

  • Melba Hall Gate 12, Royal Parade Parkville VIC 3010 Australia (map)

Kit Millais presents Music of the Night, a solo trombone recital. The romantic style of Jongen, Ferro, and Tomasi showcases the broad lyricism of the trombone. The baroque and commerical style of Marcello and Pederson display the dexterity possible and the contemporary music of Jacob TV's and Greenbaum's provides a refreshing soundscape that shows the future of musical expression.
