Bruce’s Performance Among Year’s ‘Most Memorable’

A trombone orchestra conducted by Neely Bruce, professor of music, that played in the rotunda of the Guggenheim in New York City, was named one of the year’s 10 Most Memorable Performances by Alex Ross of The New Yorker. There is a video link within the Ross piece that allows readers to hear a portion of the performance. The orchestra, consisting of 80 trombones, played Henry Brandt’s “Orbits” as part of the “Make Music” festival in New York City this summer.
