Olencki is a member of Fonema Consort and has performed with Ensemble Dal Niente, wasteLAnd, wildUP!, the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s MusicNOW.

“Weston’s performances boldly push forward notions of what the trombone is capable of in creating sound worlds of impeccable and refined energy and beauty,” said Philip Schuessler, instructor of music theory and composition at Southeastern.

He said the program will include bold contemporary music by some of today’s most forward-looking composers, such as Katherine Young, Kurt Isaacson, Aaron Cassidy and Evan Johnson. One of Schuessler’s pieces, “Pendula,” will be performed during the concert, as well.

The concert will also feature a preconcert discussion about the music and a post-concert question-and-answer session with the audience.
