The sound of horns will fill UVic’s Farquhar Auditorium Saturday night as the Palm Court Light Orchestra presents The Trumpet Shall Sound.

The cornet, a close cousin of the trumpet, will play a featured role in the concert. The Palm Court Light Orchestra has often used them because they have a sweeter, more mellow sound which fits beautifully with a small orchestra.

David Michaux will be the featured soloist playing music especially written for the cornet. The program will include ballads, the theme from Hetty Wainthrop Investigates, The Holy City and two virtuoso pieces, Napoli and The Carnival of Venice. Michaux will also join the orchestra’s other two cornets in Leroy Anderson’s Buglers’ Holiday.

Born and raised in Victoria, Michaux has been second trumpet with the Victoria Symphony since 2001 and is currently on the faculty of the Victoria Conservatory of Music. Before that, he had played with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra and Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are available by calling the UVic Centre Box Office at 250-721-8480.
