VCU faculty and trumpeter extraordinaire Rex Richardson is giving a recital on Friday, and we know from experience that these are not to be missed. Says Richardson, it’ll be
“a mixed genre concert featuring the VCU Trumpet Ensemble I, pianists Ksenia Leletkina (young Russian-born DMA student at Eastman), Brian Mahne, and Laura Candler White; saxophonists Skip Gailes and John Winn; bassist Randall Pharr and drummer Brian Jones. It’ll be a cast of…dozens! Well, about one dozen. U.S. premieres by Swedish composer Stefan Johnsson (who will be in attendance) and a world premiere by American composer James Stephenson will be presented.”
Rex Richardson’s Faculty Recital is this Friday, February 18, from 8-9pm at VCU’s Singleton Center for the Performing Arts at 922 Park Ave. Visit VCUMusic.org for more info.
