School of Music to present ‘Music from France’ piano-trombone recital January 23, 2023 Contact: Jean Hardiman, University Relations Specialist, 304-696-6397 The Marshall University School of Music will present “Music from France,” featuring faculty trombonist Dr. Michael Stroeher and faculty pianist Dr. Johan Botes. The recital begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, in Smith Recital Hall. They will perform an all-French program, including music from Henri Tomasi, Darius Milhaud and Camille Saint-Saens. “This music should appeal to almost everybody,” Stroeher said. “Tomasi and Milhaud were very much influenced by American jazz — Tomasi, especially, by Tommy Dorsey — and the Saint-Saens is a light piece of Romantic ear-candy.” The recital is free and open to all.
