Trombone and Organ recital


Trombone and Organ recital

Trombonist Dr. Benjamin Yates joins organist Dr. Brad Schultz in recital on Monday, February 12 at 7pm at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 3 Bayview Ave in Belvedere.

The duo will present a concert of music spanning four centuries, including a world premiere performance of Spiritus, a seven-movement work written for the duo by composer Brenda Portman.  Spiritus draws inspiration on the seven “Fruits of the Spirit,” weaving in original musical material with familiar hymn tunes. Works by Frescobaldi, Cesare, Wagenseil, and David Wilborn will round out the program, during which Yates will perform on sackbut, alto trombone, and tenor trombone.

Benjamin Yates is Associate Professor of Trombone at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Yates also teaches low brass at the Lutheran Summer Music Academy & Festival and is a founding member of the Service Organization of Music Professors, which raises funds and collects donated instruments, music, and music equipment for music programs in disadvantaged communities.

Brad Schultz is Organist and Minister of Music at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Belvedere, CA, where he leads worship each Sunday on the Frobenius Pipe Organ, directs the St. Stephen’s Choir, and oversees the music program. He presents often on various research topics, including the music of composers from underrepresented communities, music and aging, and the keyboard music of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, which formed the crux of his doctoral work.

The program is presented with a suggested donation of $20 to help fund further concerts at St. Stephen’s. No advance registration is necessary.

Suggested donation: $20
