William Lang, solo trombone

Critically acclaimed trombonist William Lang will give a solo trombone recital featuring music from the 12th to 21st centuries, including works by the medieval nun and mystic Hildegard von Bingen, 2022 Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Raven Chacon, J.S. Bach, and iconic Greek-French avant-gardist Iannis Xenakis.

Originally from Long Island, trombonist William Lang is an active performer, improviser, and teacher based in New York City. He can be found playing in all settings and styles, from cutting edge new premieres to classical masterpieces with orchestras, as well as Broadway shows and world famous pop artists. He has given his signature unaccompanied recitals throughout the United States, played concertos in both America and Europe, and has also recorded with such artists as Philip Glass, David Bryne, St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, and Jonsi (of Sigur Ros.) Intensely passionate for chamber music, he is a founding member of the groundbreaking ensemble loadbang (an original and unique group of musicians interested in cutting edge music,) as well as a member of groups such as the Lang/Rainwater Project, TILT Brass, SEM Ensemble, and the Argento Chamber Ensemble. The New York Times has called his playing "fiercely, virtuosic" and the Boston Globe has hailed him for his "superb performance" in past solo works. William teaches at the University of Oklahoma, as well as the Longy School of Music, and is a performing artist for Stephens Horns and Long Island Brass.
