The program, which will take place in Thompson Recital Hall of the Green Center for the Performing Arts, is presented free of admission charge and is open to all.

Lenthe will perform works by Gershwin, Dorsey, and others. He will be accompanied by pianist Kimberly Carballo.

After studying at the Curtis Institute of Music, Lenthe served as principal trombonist of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich for over 20 years. As a trombone soloist, Lenthe won first prize with special distinction at the international music competition "Prague Spring," and has appeared as a soloist with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Prague Symphony, and the Bamberg Symphony. In 1998 he returned to the United to accept a position at IU.

As interim head coach of the Opera Theater at IU's Jacobs School of Music, Kimberly Carballo (pictured at right) coordinates the musical preparation of each opera and guides the professional development of the graduate assistant coaches. Along with her extensive engagements in Costa Rica, she also draws on more than twenty years of coaching experience and collaboration with renowned artists, including many IU faculty members, and the preparation and presentation of art song recitals, instrumental recitals, and opera productions. Carballo continues to be an active pedagogue and recitalist.
