The Music Department at Utah State University presents the annual spring Caine Chamber Ensembles performance Tuesday, April 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on USU’s Logan campus.


“This concert is a clear indicator of the high level of musicianship amongst music students here at USU,” said Max Matzen, assistant professor in the Caine College of the Arts. “In chamber music there is a heightened degree of performing accountability, as the ensembles are smaller and every voice matters.”


The Caine Chamber Ensembles include the USU Trombone Choir, USU Horn Quartet, Caine Woodwind Quintet, Caine Brass Quintet, Caine Percussion Ensemble and the Caine Saxophone Quartet. Each group is auditioned, and students in the groups are awarded scholarships provided by the Marie Eccles Caine Foundation—Russell Family.


Each ensemble will perform individually, featuring a variety of works. The USU Horn Quartet will perform Sonata for Four French Horns by Paul Hindemith. The Caine Brass Quintet is performing Victor Ewald’s Quintet No. 3 and the Caine Percussion Ensemble will play Threads by Paul Lansky, to name a few of the program selections.


The Caine Chamber Ensembles performance on April 1 is free and open to the public. For more information visit the CCA Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website.
