Alexandria Smith, trumpet - Graduate Recital

Friday, February 7th, 2020 7:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater


Alexandria Smith – praised by the New York Times for her “appealingly melancholic sound” and “entertaining array of distortion effects" (on the trumpet) – presents a repertoire recital, Shifting: an exploration of Timbre. Highlighting the vocal nature and complex timbre of the trumpet, Smith will perform pieces that include extended vocal techniques, distortion-like sounds, and linear virtuosity. Featuring the creative voices of Kathryn Schulmeister (bass) and Rebecca Lloyd-Jones (percussion), Alexandria Smith will present an evening of works by Liza Lim, Pedro Alvarez, Robert Erickson, and herself.
