Trombonist Tom Riccobono is the featured soloist for the Traverse Symphony Orchestra's upcoming concert on Sunday, October 23.

He'll perform Georg Christoph Wagenseil's Trombone Concerto with the TSO.

He decided Wagenseil's concerto was a fitting selection for this weekend's program, given that the concert includes another major work from the Classical era, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Symphony No. 41.

Tom Riccobono appears regularly as a conductor for ensembles throughout the region and also teaches full time at the Interlochen Arts Academy.

Acknowledging his full schedule, Riccobono says he appreciates the area's opportunities.

"I think we're so blessed to have such a rich environment with the arts in Traverse City, and it's a pleasure to be involved in so many things. "

The Traverse Symphony Orchestra will perform Sunday, Oct. 23 at 3:00 p.m. at Corson Auditorium in Interlochen. More information available here.

Georg Christoph Wagenseil, Concerto for Trombone and Small Orchestra

This edition of Studio A was engineered by Stefan Wiebe.
