Bethel College's newest music faculty member will give his first campus recital Monday in Krehbiel Auditorium of the Bethel College Fine Arts Center.

The recital begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Timothy Shade began as instructor of music and director of instrumental music and music education last August. He directs the Bethel College Chamber Orchestra and the Bethel College Wind Ensemble and gives private instruction in low brass.

Shade performs on two instruments, the trombone and the euphonium. He will be playing the latter for the Monday recital, with Karen Bauman Schlabaugh, Bethel College professor of music, as piano accompanist.

The program will include “Concert Piece No. 1” by Joseph Turrin, “Shap-es of the Morning” by David Morgan, “Panache” by Robin Dewhurst and “Euphonium Concerto” by Martin Ellerby.

Shade holds a music performance degree in euphonium and jazz trombone from Youngstown (Ohio) State University and was a graduate assistant in the University of Miami's Frost School of Music in Coral Gables, Fla., where he completed a music performance degree in euphonium and conducting.

As a trombonist, Shade has shared the stage with well-known performers such as Wessell “Warm Daddy” Anderson, John Clayton, Harold Danko, Joey DeFrancesco, Conrad Herwig, Sean Jones, Darren Kramer, Wynton Marsalis, Jim McNeely, Bernadette Peters, and The Modernaires, performing music of all styles, including jazz, blues, funk, rock, salsa and merengue.

Shade is principal euphonium for the Wichita Wind Ensemble and an active soloist. A proponent for new music, Shade has premiered several new works and is in the process of commissioning more repertoire for the euphonium.
