This concert takes place directly after a series of cover conductor appearances at the New York Philharmonic by Round Rock Symphony’s Musical Director Stefan Sanders. Sanders, an accomplished trombonist himself, relates with enthusiasm, “We are especially excited to feature legendary trombonist, Joseph Alessi, the Principal Trombonist of the New York Philharmonic in March. Mr. Alessi is regarded the world over as the preeminent trombone soloist and pedagogue.”
Before the 3pm performance, we are welcoming visitors with live music in the lobby of the concert hall, first with Vivace Youth Orchestra (2-2:30pm), followed by the Walsh Trombone Choir, featuring students from Walsh Middle School (Round Rock ISD).
