We are absolutely delighted to welcome to the shop Timothy McAllister as part of our 2013 Clinic series. This event will be on Friday evening, October 4, from 5-6pm, and as always, it is FREE! McAllister is in town performing the John Adams' Saxophone Concerto with the Saint Louis Symphony, after giving the world premiere of this piece just this past August with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

His career has taken him all around the world, with solo performances in top performance venues across the globe, such as the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium, Zankel Hall and Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, City Hall Concert Hall in Hong Kong, Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Sumida Triphony Hall in Tokyo, Dallas’ Meyerson Center, and Rotterdam’s Zaal de Unie. He has premiered over 150 new works by today's most eminent and emerging composers. While a universally acclaimed classical saxophonist, McAllister has also appeared with many notable big bands, and performed behind such jazz greats as Jimmy Heath, Rick Margitza, and Dave Liebman.
McAllister holds the Doctor of Musical Arts and other degrees in music education, conducting, and performance from the University of Michigan, where he studied saxophone with Donald Sinta and conducting with H. Robert Reynolds. McAllister serves as Associate Professor of Saxophone and Co-Director of the Institute for New Music at the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.
