MEDINA – Under the direction of retired BPO principal trombonist, Carl Mazzio, the 24-horn SUNY Fredonia Trombone Choir wowed a crowd Saturday evening in St. Mary’s Church.

Concert-goers were thrilled with the performance and offered an extended standing ovation at the concert’s end.

The trombone choir performed several classical and pops pieces. The concert included Holy Trinity Music Director and Principal Organist Aaron Grabowski on the church’s Barckhoff pipe organ.

About 200 people attended the event. Director Mazzio praised the Orleans Renaissance Group for organizing the concert. Mazzio also praised the beauty of the venue and the hospitality in coming to Medina for the second time. The ensemble performed at St. Mary’s previously in 2012.

Many attendees made their first trip to Medina. They traveled from Amherst, Clarence, Elma and other suburbs.

The next concert in the ORG series features an evening of Irish music with East Rochester’s Róisín Dubh on March 8 at St. Mary’s Church.
