Catawba Music Presents Masterclass and Recital by The Factory Seconds Trio September 9
July 21, 2019
The Catawba Music Department will present a masterclass and recital by The Factory Seconds Trio on September 9 in Omwake-Dearborn Chapel.
The trio will be conducting a brass masterclass for area high school and college students from 5:00-6:00pm, and the recital will begin at 7:30pm. Both events will take place in Omwake-Dearborn Chapel on the Catawba College campus. Both events are free to the public.
The trio consists of Jack Sutte (trumpet), Jesse McCormick (horn), and Richard Stout (trombone). Each occupies the Second Chair position in their respective section with The Cleveland Orchestra, and all are faculty members at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory. Established in 2012, the group brings a distinctive voice into brass chamber music. Transcribing and performing a continually growing body of early music and seeking out collaborations with composers have been two key areas of focus for FSBT. Factory Seconds has premiered numerous works by a range of composers including David Loeb, Clint Needham and Robert Pound.
Factory Seconds Brass Trio is an ensemble In Residence at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory. As part of this residency, the group engages with students in multiple ways, including in-classroom collaborative teaching with academic faculty, and reading and coaching sessions. Factory Seconds was presented as soloists in a 2018 Carnegie Hall performance in collaboration with Baldwin Wallace Symphonic Wind Ensemble, and the trio returned to Carnegie as soloists with the Interlochen Arts Academy Band in 2019. The trio is also involved in the community through outreach programs and presenting family programs. Their Musical Passport series has delighted young audiences with its mix of interactive contributions from the audience and storytelling.
