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.

Featured guests include respected performer and educator Jerry Bergonzi, composer and educator Dr. Walter Hartley, Selmer Saxophone representative Stan Garber, master technician Miles Davis from Miles Ahead Instrument Repair, and composer/arranger John LaBarbara. Much of the School of Music’s faculty will also take part in the weekend’s events.

The fee for the weekend and all performances is $75.Limited on-campus housing is available. For more information or to receive a registration form, call Michael A. Tracy, Associate Professor of Music, at (502) 852-6032 or e-mail him at [email protected]
