PROFESSOR TRUMPETS EARLY AMERICAN BRASS MUSIC
Trinity Christian College invites you to explore America's musical roots. Dr. Kenneth Austin, professor of music, and Paul Maybery, a world authority on Early American Brass music, will hold a lecture recital titled "A Musical Inquiry into the Past: The Yankee Olio" at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 5, in the Van Namen Recital Hall. Admission is free. Special guests include Wayne Collier, a foremost collector of 1800s cornets and trumpets. He will have several of the rare instruments on display. Dr. Bill Crowle, prominent pianist from Chicago and piano professor at Trinity, will be accompanying the program.
Dr. Austin has been a full time professional trumpeter in most modern styles of playing from classical to big band since he was 19 years old. This program represents his research into the music, instruments, and culture from America during the Civil War era.
Paul Maybery recently completed a 20-year project, The Yankee Olio, a historical anthology of 50 solos for the E-flat cornet. He has led a versatile musical life as an arranger, conductor, educator, tuba player, and musicologist. Paul will give a brief talk on Early American Brass music and culture from the Civil War period.
