The Elysian Trombone Consort will perform one movement from Don Bowyer’s Trombone Requiem at the College Music Society’s National Conference in San Diego at 1pm on November 15, 2012. The conference will be held in the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.

The full Trombone Requiem is about 35 minutes in length, and was scored for six trombones who also chant and play hand percussion instruments. The ensemble will perform a four-trombone version of the “Dies Irae.” More information on the composition is available here.

In addition to this composition performance, Bowyer will also serve at the conference as the moderator for a panel discussion on “Hiring in the Music Industry,” as Chair of the Music Business & Industry Committee, and as a member of the International Initiatives Committee and the Argentina 2013 Planning Committee.
