Lee’s Trombone Ensemble To Present “Jingle Bones”

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Lee University’s Trombone Ensemble will present “Jingle Bones: Just enough Christmas Music to get you through Thanksgiving.” The performance will take place on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall under the direction of Dr. Doug Warner.

“This year’s group is very talented and has been working hard in a very busy semester,” said Dr. Warner, professor of music and director of applied study at Lee. “The concert will be brief but engaging and entertaining, with a wide variety of musical styles represented.”

The program will consist of various styles of music that have been written specifically for trombone ensembles of four to eight players. Arrangements of songs and pieces from other genres of music will also be included, and the concert will conclude with Christmas music to enter into the festive season. 

Featured pieces include Paul Creston’s “Fanfare for Paratroopers,” Walter S. Hartley’s “Canzona for 8 Trombones,” Billy Joel’s “And So It Goes,” and Vaclav Nelhybel’s “Tower Music.” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Christmas Trombones” will also be featured.

Additionally, Antonin Dvorák’s “Going Home,” a folk song that was originally a melody written for Dvorák’s Ninth Symphony, will be performed with a special arrangement by Brad Jensen. According to Dr. Warner, this arrangement of “Going Home” that will be presented was composed by Chattanooga trombonist Jensen as a memorial to Michael Carver, former bass trombonist with the Chattanooga Symphony who passed away this past May.

The Trombone Ensemble includes music performance, music education, and music business majors and only presents one or two concerts per year.

Dr. Warner has been the principal trombone for the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera since 1985. He is also a highly demanded freelance performer and teacher in the greater Chattanooga area. Dr. Warner has performed as a member of the King’s Brass, a nine-member sacred brass ensemble that tours in the summer, as well as the Dayton Philharmonic, the Huntsville Symphony, the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, and the Northern Kentucky Symphony.

The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
