Chance Trottman-Huiet, a graduate student in the School of Music at Western Michigan University, has chosen a wide variety of tuba music by modern composers for his master's recital. 

While talking about pieces by Eric Ewazen, Krzysztof Penderecki, John Williams and Anthony Plog, Trottman-Huiet describes his experiences as a musician in a master's program. He credits his teacher, Jacob Cameron, with having a rare ability to listen and assess his students' playing.

Chance's recital is Saturday, February 21 at 2 pm in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. In April, he will appear with the WMU Orchestra as a soloist in the annual Concerto Concert, as one of three winners of the School of Music's concerto competition.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
