Centre College's annual Concerto Concert will feature four soloists Tuesday. These musicians competed in December for the opportunity to perform with the orchestra. Ben Yeiser and Andrew Boylan are among the soloists Tuesday. Boylan said he will perform the first movement of Franz Joseph Haydn's “Trumpet Concerto in E-flat Major.” He said he became a musician, in part, because of its communication value. “I'm a musician because music is the best medium for expression. Better than a picture, words,or any action, music delivers the raw emotion and pure feeling of what the composer was trying to communicate through the notes on the page as well as anything that the performer wants to add into it,” Boylan explained. “For me, music is at the same time the simplest and the most complex form of communicating emotion, which only makes it more interesting.” Boylan said next year he will be attending Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, as the Graduate Trumpet Assistant.
