A founding member of Lineage Percussion, a percussion trio, Trevor Barroero made history in May of 2016 when his ensemble won the bronze medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, becoming the first percussionists in the 43-year history of the competition to be selected as senior-division finalists.

Find out more about Trevor Barroero and stay up-to-date about future performances by visiting www.trevorbarroero.com Barroero will perform Emmanuel Sejourne's “Concerto for Marimba and Strings”, a demanding work for any percussionist. Commissioned by the 2006 International Marimba Competition in Linz, this energetic piece features virtuosic playing that spans the entire range of the instrument. Intense, fast-moving lines are interrupted by long lyrical passages that will captivate the audience. Although a French composer, Sejourne transports the audience to the depths of Spain, as the soloist assumes the role of toreador in this passionate and exciting composition.
