Mindfulness Meditation

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Event Image Brass Trio Faculty Recital
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

In Willamette University’s Hudson Hall, music faculty will present a Brass Trio recital at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 3rd  Highlights from the program will feature the haunting and atmospheric melodies of Alan Hovhaness, the modern eclecticism of Anthony Plog, and the energetically brilliant music from the late Renaissance era.

Sarah Viens, Michael Hettwer, and Carson Keeble are excited to present their first collaboration showcasing music for the unique combination of trumpet, french horn and trombone.  A leaner, nimbler sibling to the ubiquitous Brass Quintet (which has an extra trumpet and a tuba), the Brass Trio provides great diversity in timbre, range, and volume, yet always allowing for a clear and open sonority.  The repertoire written for Brass Trio is less abundant than the Brass Quintet, though a group of clever composers such as Hovhaness, Plog and Václav Nelhýbel have uncovered innovations of sonority for this petite and well balanced three-voice ensemble. The trio will become quartet for a suite of short pieces from the late Renaissance era, as Sarah, Michael, and Carson are joined by Willamette University senior and Hatfield Scholar, Ziv Feinberg on trumpet. Ziv has been an exceptional addition to the Willamette music scene during his tenure here and they are excited for him join them in a professional capacity!

Sarah Viens is Principal Trumpet of the Eugene Symphony and Orchestra Next. She is a member of the Sunriver Music Festival Orchestra and an avid freelancer and music administrator throughout the region.  Micheal Hettwer is Principal Horn of the Portland Opera, and the Salem and Linfield Chamber Orchestras. Carson Keeble is a frequent guest trombonist with the Oregon, Seattle and Colorado Symphonies.  All are highly sought-after educators and clinicians throughout the country and have private teaching studios in Portland, Salem and Eugene.

There is a suggested donation of $8/adults, $5/students, and the concert is free to Willamette faculty, students, staff, and ICL members with ID.  For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255503-370-6255
