A native of Tucson, Trevor has had many extraordinary opportunities during his years studying music in Arizona, most recently including featured performances as a marimba soloist in British Columbia and as the guest timpanist of the Moscow Symphony in Russia.

Trevor's recital on March 22nd will be his final solo performance at the University of Arizona before graduating and pursuing graduate studies outside of the state. The exciting event will showcase Trevor on a variety of instruments including the marimba, steel drums, and multi-percussion and will feature collaborations with over 10 different musicians throughout the performance.  It will also include the world premiere of a new percussion solo commissioned specifically for this concert.

About the event, Barroero says, “Music was, and always will be, a source of healing for me. As a passionate and collaborative art form, music can thrive when words fail. It is the tool with which musicians can heal, empower, and communicate with others. For my recital on March 22nd, I have been working hard to find repertoire that will wrestle with the realities of grief while still highlighting the beauty of life.”
