San Francisco-based contemporary music trombonist Weston Olencki specializes in hyper-extended instrumental technique, intensive performance physicality, and re-definition of the performing body. Weston’s program includes intensely bold contemporary music by some of today’s most forward-looking compositional voices. From the nuanced and subtle to the brazen and bombastic, Weston’s performances boldy push forward notions of what the trombone is capable of to create sound worlds of impeccable and refined energy and beauty.
Program includes works by Katherine Young, Timothy McCormack, Andrew Greenwald, Evan Johnson, Michelle Lou, and Kurt Isaacson.
