World Premiere of Three Afro-Hispanic Movements For Trombone and Concert Band

April 8 @ 7:30 pm

Trombone Concertos based on African themes are a rarity. Three Afro-Hispanic Movements by Puerto Rican composer William Pagán-Pérez represents a first for its use of Afro-Caribbean poetry and rhythms. Mr. Pagán was inspired by Luis Palés-Matos’ poem, Majestad Negra, and freely cast the work with the use of Puerto Rican bomba rhythms. It includes traditional virtuoso and melodic passages with elements and texture from the Afro-Hispanic culture of Puerto Rico, such as rhythms, dance, and poetry.

Three Afro-Hispanic Movements for Trombone and Concert Band will receive its world premiere on April 8, 2021, at 7:30 pm, as part of the Celebrates the Arts Festival of the University of Central Florida. The artists leading this premiere will be trombonist Dr. Luis F. Fred and Dr. Tremon Kizer, joined by the UCF Symphonic Band.

The event will be at the Seneff Art Plaza Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando. Tickets: $10, $5 with UCF ID (use code UCFCTA2021). For more information, please visit https://arts.cah.ucf.edu/celebrates/
