World Premiere of "Hang On!" by Jim Self
While most of life has taken a dramatic pause, there just isn't stopping musicians, composers and performers alike. This is the world premiere of a piece called "Hang On!" written by Principal Tuba Jim Self.
Here's a note from this piece's composer: "These are my talented USC students that I coached this year premiering "Hang On!" It combines The Weapons of Brass Destruction Quintet and The USC Bass Tuba Quartet. They did it from their homes all over the country. I’m very proud of them! The piece was supposed to have been premiered at my annual chamber music concert at my home in April but, alas, we had to cancel that. It is dedicated to the Heroic Coronavirus Workers. "Hang On!" has a particular meaning theses days."
