Larry Zalkind is an acting associate principal trombone player of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and on Friday he will be a part of the UI School of Music Guest Artist Series. Zalkind will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the University Capitol Centre Recital Hall. Admission is free.

His performance will consist of pieces not only for the trombone but also for the alto and bass trombones. The program will include about seven pieces with some narration, and there will be numerous songs that Zalkind will announce once he is on stage.

Before joining the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Zalkind was the principal trombone player of the Utah Symphony for 18 years. He taught at the University of Utah for 26 years and was a member of the Summit Brass, in which he not only played trombone but euphonium as well.

Zalkind has released two solo CDs with Summit Records, and his third album will be released next year. Both of his CDs feature the trombone in many different settings and accompanied by other instruments.
