I am excited to finally announce the list of wonderful musicians that will be collaborating with me on my upcoming benefit concert, ...in loving memory. The event, scheduled for March 22nd, is essentially a solo recital on its surface. However, the heart and soul of the performance exists within its unique musical collaborations. I am extremely lucky to have this opportunity to share the stage with such a special group of musicians.
Preparations are well underway for my benefit concert, ...in loving memory, that will take place on March 22nd to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Association. The date is confirmed. The venue is booked. Now onto the fun part: learning 700+ measures of music in 28 days!
For the next several weeks, I will be posting regular updates to my website to document my progress and preparations for my March 22nd benefit concert. Although a solo recital at its roots, this event will thrive on its unique musical collaborations. This event is essentially a 2nd senior recital and will be my final featured performance at the University of Arizona before I graduate this spring.
So...if you haven't already, please save the date:
Trevor Barroero Presents:
...in loving memory
A Benefit Concert for the Alzheimer's Association

This past month I traveled to Russia to perform as guest timpanist of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. We performed Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto (with soloist Kristóf Baráti), and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1. To perform the music of Tchaikovsky with a Russian orchestra in the Tchaikovsky Music Conservatory was a surreal combination.
This trip was my first experience traveling to a non-English speaking country by myself. After 29 hours of travel, I was thrust into a completely different world: one notably filled with the Cyrillic alphabet. Despite my exhaustion and amateur ability to read Russian, I managed to board the correct Aeroexpress train from the SVO airport to Moscow.
