Acclaimed Interlochen brass faculty to perform at Traverse City’s historic Kirkbride Hall

Trombonist Thomas Riccobono, hornist Corbin Wagner, and trumpeter Ken Larson will unite for an eclectic program in the intimate space on Nov. 14. 

Interlochen Arts Academy’s acclaimed brass faculty will perform at Traverse City’s Kirkbride Hall on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 pm as part of Interlochen Presents’ Artists from Interlochen at Kirkbride Hall series.

Trumpeter Ken Larson, trombonist Thomas Riccobono, and hornist Corbin Wagner will bring an eclectic program to the unique venue. “We are performing Renaissance and Baroque era pieces that we have 'stolen' from other instruments because of the small amount of repertoire written for our instruments,” said Riccobono. This includes arrangements for brass instruments of two of the well-known Three-Part Inventions for piano by J.S. Bach. Modern works round out the program with pieces by Arne Running and Daniel Schnyder.

Originally built as the chapel of the Traverse City State Hospital, Kirkbride Hall was used to host a range of social events for patients including religious services, dances, lectures, and concerts. Its cathedral-like ceiling and stained glass windows offer a particularly memorable venue for live music.

This concert is the fourth and final performance this year in the Artists from Interlochen at Kirkbride Hall series. Interlochen Presents has offered this intimate series since 2015.
