June 14 Arthur Pryor, the Music of JP Sousa Concert

Arthur Pryor—a name often forgotten but a style that still sets feet dancing. Arhur Pryor served as lead trombonist, composer, and arranger for John Phillip Sousa’s ragtime band. The Liberatti of the slide trombone, Pryor completed six coast to coast tours before tiring of life on the road. He also immortalized much of Sousa’s music by serving as recording coordinator and furthering the work of the Victor Talking Machine.
Tom Patnaude, longtime solo trombonist, and Jim Mason, accompanist par excellence bring Arthur Pryor’s music to life for the Grand Rapids Summer Series audience, Tuesday June 14 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church at noon.
Treat your friends to a free 30-minute concert followed by a $6.00 luncheon served by the church women.
