In preparation for its June 1-9 tour in Germany, The University of Southern Mississippi Trombone Choir, under the direction of Dr. Bruce Tychinski, will present a special one-hour concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 31 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg.
The Hattiesburg concert at Westminster will preview their tour program of works by well-known German and Austrian composers, including Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and Haydn.
During the tour, the choir will perform concerts in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich as well as the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig at the gravesite of J. S. Bach, performing "a Musical Offering."
