The School of Music's Wind Ensemble presents a concert titled "Points of Departure, Point of Return" at  7:30 p.m. Thursday in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.  Admission is free.

The concert features two guest musicians, Larry Zalkind, acting associate principal trombonist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Christopher Hayes, associate professor of trombone at Ohio University.

The ensemble will present the Ohio premiere of "Streets of Paris," a piece composed by noted jazz trombonist Bill Reichenbach specifically with Zalkind in mind.

"It is a fun piece of music that reflects the composer's feelings about the French capital and the trombone as a vehicle for musical expressivity," said Andrew Trachsel, director of bands.

Zalkind will teach several master classes while in residence here on campus.

"Not only is he a tremendously accomplished musician, but also a great teacher. Students can learn so much about musicianship and artistry, as well as professionalism and the dedication it takes to achieve in the music world like Zalkind," Trachsel said.
