BPL@Night Presents Vulcan Bones

The Vulcan Bones is in residence at Samford University, and was founded back in 2003. The members of Vulcan Bones come from many walks of life: from high school standouts to surgeons, to professional trombonists in the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. They love to play a variety of music, from the earliest written trombone music, to modern jazz, popular, and, of course, movie music.

The sound of a trombone choir is one of the most homogenous of all instrumental groups. From the early days of its invention for the support of voices, the trombone family has been a model for the most expressive and dynamic of music making.

Program Details
Where: In the atrium at the Central Library
When: Thursday, May 15

BPL@Night is made possible, in part, by the Jefferson County Commission through the Jefferson County Community Arts Fund administered by the Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham, and by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

BPL thanks Compass Bank for its generous support of BPL@Night.
