Saxophone Weekend 2001

The University of Louisville School of Music will host its third annual Saxophone Weekend, an examination and celebration of that most versatile instrument in all its varied guises, from Nov. 9 – Nov. 11.

The comprehensive sax coverage includes (but is not limited to) discussions of solo and ensemble playing, the saxophone’s role in the orchestra and band as well as on the jazz stage, care, maintenance and construction of the instrument, and the subtleties of composing for the sax. Performances by students, faculty and guests will put the ideas expounded in master classes and workshops into practice. Students of all ages and ability levels are encouraged to attend.
