Making Music in Southern Oregon

Saxophone Workshop Day 2

Tuesday was a day of intense rehearsals. Today we decide we pick the music for the Thursday and Friday Concerts. In between rehearsals and classes, the students visit displays by Cripple Creek Music, Larry’s Music and Yamaha Corporation. All the instruments are there for the students to try. Each store has music, reeds and instruments to purchase. Here is a video of the room:

In the early evening the faculty, Globe Saxophone Quartet, performed at the Eden Valley Orchards. In spite of the near 100 degree heat, the outdoor concert was well attended with many local saxophone fans and students of the workshop. The Globe Saxophone Quartet entertained the audience with a variety of classical transcriptions, original saxophone music and light audience favorites.

In this video Globe imitates Scottish bagpipes in the piece “Robert Burns Suite” by Paul Harvey.
