Brandon recently wrote a piece for 8 trombones titled “Firethorn.”
The octet is one of eight pieces composed by eight Texas composers for the Red River Trombones, a group consisting of trombone professors from eight universities in Texas and Oklahoma, for their new series titled “8x8x8.”
Bass trombonist Dennis Bubert, professor at UTA, asked Brandon to contribute a new composition for the program. "‘Firethorn’ shows Brandon's deep affinity for the trombone, which he continues to play,” Bubert says.
The Red River Trombones are attending the 2019 International Trombone Festival in Muncie, Indiana and takes place this July 10-13 at Ball State University. The “8x8x8” performance is at 1:30pm at Sursa Performance Hall on Friday July 12th.
