On Sept. 27, tuba player Patrick Sheridan will join the Idaho State-Civic Symphony at the Jensen Grand Concert Hall of the Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Sheridan performed in over 50 countries, and also at the White House, Hollywood Bowl and NBA half-time events. A sample of his incredible talent can be viewed at http://youtu.be/fmc5Fs2UujI, as he performs The Flight of the Bumblebee.

“Sheridan creates an atmosphere in which the listener is swept up into a fantastic world of sound and imagination,” said The Herald, a Scottish newspaper. “His instrument becomes transparent, the music stands triumphant and the listen can’t help but enjoy themselves.”

In addition to performing in around the world, he has mentored principal positions in major international ensembles from Vienna to Hong Kong. He is a composer, arranger and consultant who has influenced instruments for orchestras worldwide. Sheridan has also co-authored the GIA publication “Leadership Success” with Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser. He is currently a music faculty member at Arizona State University and UCLA.

The evening’s program also includes Beethoven’s “Egmont Overture,” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade.”

Doors to the concert open at 7 p.m. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Beverages, desserts and snack plates are available for purchase before the concert.

Tickets are $34 per adult, $18 for students through high school and ISU students are free with valid Bengal ID card. Third-tier balcony seating is $12, and rush tickets are available after 7 p.m. at $18. All prices are subject to additional box office fees and credit card charges.
