Patrick Sheridan, one of the most celebrated tuba soloists in the instrument’s history, will perform March 31 at Texas State University.

The event will be 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.

Sheridan has performed more than 3,000 concerts in more than 50 countries, in venues ranging from the White House to NBA half-time shows to the Hollywood Bowl. At 20 years of age, Patrick became a member of "The President’s Own" United States Marine Band. During his military service, he entertained audiences across the U.S. with his amazing virtuosity and musicianship as one of the band’s primary soloists.

Since then, Sheridan has gone on to become a diverse artist with concert performances transcending stylistic genres and building fans around the world for the tuba. He has been featured in television and radio broadcasts on four continents including appearances most recently on NBC’s Today Show and NPR’s All Things Considered and Performance Today. Sheridan maintains a busy international career with more than 75 concerts annually with orchestras, bands, chamber ensembles and in recital. At home and abroad, Sheridan also performs with the creative collective, the Big Bottom Band (www.bigbottomband.com).

Admission to the performance is $10 for adults, $5 for students, military or seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance online at www.txstatepresents.com. Parking is available on a cash-only basis for $5 at the Edward Gary Street Garage.
