Published 12:40 am, Friday, December 2, 2011
Westport Public Library will present a performance by the Yale Trombone Quartet 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, in the library's McManus Room, 20 Jesup Road.
The quartet, comprised of Jennifer Griggs, Brian Reese and Ruben Rodríguez on tenor trombone and Craig Watson on bass trombone, will perform a selection of Christmas and Chanukah music, according to a release from the library.
The quartet was formed in 2009 at the Yale School of Music, with each of its members coming from different musical contexts and diverse artistic experiences, the release states. In 2010, they travelled to Columbia, South America, to participate as performers and faculty at the inaugural Cien Anos-Cien Trombones Festival in Bogota. The group has performed in many recital halls in Connecticut, including Sprague Memorial Hall and the British Art Museum in New Haven.
