The Magnificent Sax Machine

  • thumbnail for Frederick Hemke
  • In its day, The Brown Brothers and other saxophone ensembles were "hot stuff". Today the Saxophone Ensemble is a legitimate music making ensemble in educational institutions around the world. With standard transcriptions, the new literature being written for the ensemble is exciting and accessible. The clinic will address the organization of an ensemble, finding literature and fitting it into a music curriculum. Northwestern University students will highlight this powerful, engaging new sound.
