The Caine Chamber Ensembles, student ensembles are USU, are featured in concert April 4, 7:30 p.m., USU Performance Hall.

Utah State University’s Department of Music presents the Caine Chamber Ensembles Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on USU’s Logan campus.

 

“Chamber performance is much more difficult as there are fewer players and a much higher degree of accountability from each member,” said Max Matzen, assistant professor of trumpet in the Caine College of the Arts. “I always think these chamber performances are a very clear indicator of what our students are capable of.”

 

The performance is an annual spring concert, featuring the Caine Brass Quintet, Caine Horn Quartet, Caine Percussion Ensemble, Caine Saxophone Quartet and Caine Woodwind Quintet. The music of 20th century composers, including Astor Piazzolla, Ivan Trevino and Alfred Reed, will be performed.

 

The Caine Chamber Ensembles are composed of students who auditioned for the different groups at the beginning of the semester. All members of the ensembles are awarded a scholarship, provided by the Marie Eccles Caine—Russell family.

 

The performance by the Caine Chamber Ensembles is April 4 at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website.
