The 24-piece Bones East trombone ensemble will return to DeWitt Community Church (DCC) for its second annual Palm Sunday concert. The concert is free and open to the public; however, attendees are invited to donate $5-$10 toward the church’s pipe organ fund.
Bones East is co-directed by William “Bill” Harris ’65, G’79, a low brass instructor in the Setnor School of Music in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA), and Tom Camp, a retired high school band director who is the group’s resident composer and arranger.
They are joined by guest conductors David DiGennaro ’90; Colleen Dailey; and James Peer, who also will give the local premiere of Camp’s Peerless on solo bass trombone.
The rest of the program spans traditional and contemporary fare, including Sousa’s The Washington Post, Joplin’s Solace, Schubert’s March Militaire, Bruckner’s Christus Factus Est, and the Amy Grant chestnut Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song).
In addition to Harris, other members of the group with University affiliations are Mark Anderson G’18, James D’Addario ’80 and DiGennaro.
