This concert of the San Jose Wind Symphony was held on Feb 21st in Saratoga with guest artist, Joe Alessi, on trombone. The SJWS sounded very good, clean and smooth. Rhythmiclic on and good intonation. Mr. Alessis was fantastic. Every note was perfect. Everything was clean across the entire range of the trombone. It was very impressive to hear the SJWS with the best trombone player in the world.
SJWS is delighted to welcome Joseph Alessi, principal trombone with the New York Philharmonic. Mr. Alessi returns to his native Bay Area to perform Derek Bourgeois' sparkling Trombone Concerto. Don't miss this chance to see one of the world's great trombone virtuosos!
