An Octubafest recital will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Harriet Fulton Theatre at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
It will feature the members of the UT Martin Low Brass Studio — Dr. Bradley Coker, assistant professor of music; Delana Easley, lecturer of music; and Dr. Dwight Gatwood, recently-retired UT Martin music professor.
The performance will consist of a variety of works by several composers. Musical selections will include pieces for low brass choir, tuba/euphonium duet, tuba duet, trombone quartet and solo works for trombone, euphonium and tuba with piano.
Similar in function to the TubaChristmas performances that take place in cities all over the United States, Octubafest concerts seek to inform audiences about the family of low brass instruments, while providing enjoyable music for listeners of all ages.
This event will be free and open to the public.
