Wycliffe Gordon, critically and popularly acclaimed and award-winning musician, composer, arranger, educator, leader, and musical ambassador - and widely regarded as one of the greatest trombonists in history! -  performs with the university’s student musicians in a concert celebrating the inauguration of Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J. as the 27th President of The University of Scranton. The University of Scranton Concert Band is an 80+ member ensemble and the Concert Choir is a 60+ member ensemble, both comprised of members of the university community from majors and departments spanning the curriculum - the vast majority of them undergraduate students, joined by a few graduate students and members of the faculty and staff - none of whom are music majors, who are all brought together by their mutual love of music-making.
