Classically trained, Aaron graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy and Boston University. He is a member of the Jacksonville, Florida Symphony and spends his summers performing in the Opera Orchestra at the Glimmerglass Festival in New York.
In addition to his classical "gigs," Aaron is known to play in jazz clubs in Jacksonville and elsewhere.
The program he will present at Western Illinois University includes recital pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Franz Strauss, performed in collaboration with WIU pianist Minjung Seo.
In addition, Randall Faust, WIU's Professor of Horn, will join Aaron and Minjung for a performance of Three American Folksongs for two horns and piano.
The recital will conclude with bassist Matthew Hughes joining Aaron as they perform several jazz standards.
Admission to this program is free and the public is invited to attend.
