Here’s a shot of one of our bows on stage with the two pianists I performed the piece with:
Fusion Curtain Call - Dale Wolford, Michael McGraw and Natal'ya Feygina
The PSQ just completed performing two concerts at University of the Pacific in Stockton and San Jose State University. The highlight was Steve Reich’s “New York Counterpoint” with 12 saxophones--a great piece!
Things are winding down at SJSU. It’s been a great year, with the strongest group of students I’ve had. There were 4 wonderful recitals this spring, with seniors Jon Jow, Erez Levi and Rebecca Fielder. Graduate student Jonathan Bautista Lagunte performed a a challenging and musical recital of works by John Anthony Lennon, Victor Morosco’s “Blue Caprice,” the Dubois “Concerto,” and Carl Anton Wirth’s “Jepthah,” with yours truly on the soprano sax part. We’ll be capping the year off with our annual “Sax Sail” on SF Bay next Friday with the entire sax ensemble--should be fun!
