A recital featuring British trombonist Jonathan Warburton is next on tap for the Pittsburg State University Department of Music.

After graduating from music school with a first class honors degree in bass trombone, he spent two years with the National Youth Wind Orchestra and performed with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra. His musical compositions are published by Warwick Music of Coventry, England. His CD “Moving On” is also available through Warwick.

The free concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, at McCray Hall on the campus of PSU.

Warburton will be accompanied by pianist Tate Addis. The program will include works that are U.S. premiers, world premiers, or works premiered on his current tour, as well as works from established brass composers.
