American University Saxophone Symposium This Saturday, March 26!
American University will be hosting a Saxophone
Symposium at AU's Greenberg Theatre on Saturday,
March 26. The all-day event will include lectures,
recitals and performances by esteemed professors and
performers selected from colleges across the country.
This is a unique opportunity to examine from many
viewpoints the relationship between composers and
performers as new works are created for the instrument
including Debussy's 'Secrets of Musical Composition,'
20th century female composers, and contemporary
techniques. Highlights for the day will include a
masterclass by Dr. John Sampen, a concert of debut
works for the saxophone from an international
composition contest, and an Encore Series presentation
"A Tribute to Brian Minor." Musicians can bring their
instruments for a free diagnostic from Beach
Instrument Musical Repair while they enjoy the
performances. Tickets and further information can be
