Saxquest – VICTOR GOINES Jazz Clinic – Saturday Nov 13 – 11:30am

When: 2010-11-13

I’m very excited to invite you out to the last in our 2010 series of special events at Saxquest. This Saturday, November 13, we’ll be hosting a free performance/clinic with master saxophonist/clarinetist, Victor Goines. He will be here at the Saxquest shop starting at 11:30am in performance as a quartet featuring an all-star St. Louis rhythm section. The setting will be casual and refreshments will be served.

Victor Goines is widely recognized as one of the most engaging and versatile performers, composers, collaborators and educators in music today. Equally gifted on both clarinet and saxophone, he has drawn from his New Orleans roots to establish an extraordinary career including performances throughout the world earning acclaim from audiences, critics, students and colleagues.

“Mr. Goines exhibits a maturity and soulfulness that bespeaks his dues playing and his understanding of the importance of this history and tradition”. – Offbeat
