LINCOLN CITY – This spring, the Lincoln City Cultural Center has hosted music from Iran, Spain, Ghana and Ireland, and genres ranging from jazz and bluegrass to classical guitar and ragtime piano. And now, as they say, for something completely different: The Pacific Trombone Quartet, featuring four of the finest ‘bone players in the Pacific Northwest, will play a varied and unusual program in a matinee performance, 1 pm on Saturday, June 6.
All the members of the PTQ — Greg Scholl, Lars Campbell, Kenneth Biggs and John Warton — have regular jobs with a variety of symphonies and bands. But they love to get together, and concentrate on the warm, mellow sound of the trombone. They favor transcriptions arranged for four trombones, but they also pull from the worldwide library of compositions written especially for the trombone quartet.
The June 6 program will include, among other selections, the suite from “The Fairy Queen” by Henry Purcell, “Chaconne in D Minor” by Johan Sebastian Bach, “Six Pieces for Trombones” by Vaclav Nelhybel, and “I’m Beginning to See the Light.” Tickets for this 1 pm matinee concert are $13 in advance, available online at lincolncity-culturalcenter.org or by calling the box office at 541-994-9994. Admission will be $15 at the door.
