Heukeshovens Give Preview Performance Before European Tour


The husband and wife duo of Janet and Eric Heukeshoven will perform Duo Concertanté with the Winona Municipal Band in Lake Park Band Shell at 8p.m. onWednesday June 22, 2016. The new music was commissioned for the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music 2016 European tour. Eric Heukeshoven adapted and arranged music originally written for two trombones by Friedrich August Belcke – a German composer who lived from 1795 to 1874.

Following their Winona Municipal Band performance, the couple will perform the duet with a group of select high school aged musicians from throughout the state as part of the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music 2016 program. Performance venues on this year’s tour include London, Paris, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany beginning in early July.

The Heukeshovens both serve on the music faculty at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. The performance on June 22 is free and open to the public.
