Music Historian and Trombonist, Al Anderson, to perform July 19th at the Monona Public Library

Monona, WI – Former music educator, music historian, and professional trombonist, Al Anderson, is set to put his trusty trombone into action Wednesday, July 19th outdoors at the Monona Public Library. Listen and learn the backstory behind some of the most popular Broadway show tunes, such as such as West Side Story, My Fair Lady, and Phantom of the Opera.

Resident Services Director, Becky Rogers says “Al Anderson has a great thing going on! He has the unique ability to take folks right back into the “golden age” of music and they thoroughly enjoy each performance.”

These unique and engaging programs are great for everyone. Bring the whole family and enjoy the sweet melodies that slide through this brass horn! This active professional trombonist has played for some of jazz’s biggest groups over the years. The program runs about an hour: admittance is free and a cold refreshment will be provided courtesy of the local Monona Starbucks.

Recreational Coordinator Janet Ransdell says “He incorporates a wonderful mix of music education, entertainment, and audience interaction with music that audiences genuinely enjoy.”
