Cody Schroeder, from Goddard, Kan., will perform his senior trombone recital at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19 in the Tabor College Chapel. Schroder, the son of Nate and Bonnie Schroder, is a business management major studying trombone under Brian Postier. Schroeder will be performing four solos: Blue Bells of Scotland by Arthur Pryor; Visions of Light Movement II by Eric Ewazen; Nocturno by Franz Strauss and Concertino by Ferdinand David. He will be accompanied on these pieces by Zach Neumann.
Schroeder will also be joined by Daniel Baldwin, Emery Schroeder and Brian Postier to perform his own arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon. Schroeder believes that his experience at Tabor has helped develop him as a musician and as a person.
“Due to my experience here, I feel I have the ability to continue to graduate school for music performing if desired,” he said. “I have also developed leadership skills that I would not have had the opportunity of obtaining at a different school.”
For Schroeder, music also plays a big role in spiritual development. “I feel that God grants everyone with different talents and gifts,” Schroeder said. “One of mine was being able to play the trombone.”
“By practicing hard and doing my best in performance, I am honoring and thanking him for the gifts he has given me,” he added.
After graduating, Schroeder will work as part-time resident director for the townhomes until spring break. He will then be moving to Wichita to begin employment at a remodeling construction company while awaiting his wedding in May.
