Monthly Local Saxophonist Showcase #9 Joel Vanderheyden

When: 2017-09-30

Dr. Joel Vanderheyden is a versatile saxophonist, composer, and educator with tremendous passion for the unifying power of music. Currently, Dr. Vanderheyden serves as Associate Professor of Music and Director of Jazz at Jefferson College. He is a performing artist/clinician for D’Addario Woodwinds and Selmer Saxophones.

As a performer, he draws upon his study of jazz and classical saxophone, immersing himself in a variety of musical situations. On the classical side of things Joel has performed with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and is a member of the Renegade Saxophone Quartet. He is also a founding member of the electro-jazz group, Koplant No. We have been fortunate to have Joel perform here at Saxquest on several different occassions,both with his group Koplant No, and the Renegade Saxophone Quartet.
This time around we are excited to hear Joel playing some straight ahead Jazz in a quartet setting featuring some of the best local rhythm section players St. Louis has to offer.

Joel will be performing with Adam Maness on Piano, Bob Deboo on Bass, and Kaleb Kirby on Drums. The event is free and open to the public at Saxquest on Cherokee St, Saturday, September 30, at 2pm.
