Dave BohnertAn eclectic blend of music unfolds during a faculty trumpet recital by Dr. David Bohnert on Thursday, Sept. 9, in Ley Theatre at Wayne State College. The 7:30 p.m. performance includes piano accompaniment by Shelly Armstrong. Dr. Melissa Derechailo on horn also joins Bohnert during the performance. Bohnert serves as director of bands at WSC.

The concert is free and open to the public and will also be livestreamed. To view the livestream, go to www.wsc.edu/watch-live. The program will be accessible by selecting the event from the Music Events list at www.wsc.edu/music.

Repertoire incorporates the colorful artistry of "Framed" by Cecilia McDowall and the jazz-infused "Concerto for Trumpet" by Harry James. The fast-paced but elegant "Sonata St. Marc" by Tomaso Albinoni, beautifully passionate "Quatre Variations sur un Theme de Scarlatti" by Marcel Bitsch, and tango-inspired "Fantango for Trumpet, Horn, and Piano" by Kevin McKee complete the technically challenging program.
