Former Gardnerville resident and bass trombonist Dan Barrett will join the Carson City Symphony Sunday in a performance of Eric Ewazen’s Concerto for Bass Trombone or Tuba and Orchestra.

The concert begins at 4 p.m. at the Carson Community Center’s Bob Boldrick Theater. Pre-concert entertainment begins in the lobby at 3 p.m. and a “Meet the Soloist” concert preview will take place in the Sierra Room at 3:15 p.m.

The Carson City Symphony, conducted by David Bugli, also will play Felix Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture (“Fingal’s Cave”), Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 (“Spring”), and Bugli’s new arrangement for orchestra of J.P. Meder’s “My Own Waltz.”

Barrett, a graduate of Douglas High School, has performed with the Utah Symphony, the Utah Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Brass, and several other professional classical and jazz ensembles. He played trombone with the Carson City Symphony from 1993 to 1998, and has been a soloist with the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra, the BYU Trombone Choir, and the Utah Premiere Brass.

Barrett attended the University of Nevada, Reno and Brigham Young University, where he received bachelors and masters degrees. He is currently completing a doctorate at Arizona State University.

The Carson City Symphony is a community orchestra of about 55 players who perform music from the 15th to 21st centuries. Named “Organization of the Year 2004,” Carson City Symphony is funded, in part, by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors, students, and Symphony Association members, and free for children age 16 and under. Tickets are available at Play Your Own Music in the Carson Mall, online at, or at the door on the day of the performance.
