Saxquest Presents PEDROSAXO Clinic/Performance - May 11
We are thrilled to kick off our summer clinic/performance series this year with a truly innovative performer, a player who is uniquely expanding the limits of what the saxophone can do. PEDROSAXO will be here at Saxquest on Sunday, May 11, from 1-3pm.
“Pedrosaxo is the Bobby McFerrin of the saxophone!”
Saxophonist for Dave Matthews Band and 3x Grammy-winner with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones
Pedrosaxo has revolutionized the saxophone. He has synthesized his many interests - imitation, acting, video gaming, and composition - into a breathtaking and truly unique artistic statement. Quite simply, he has obliterated all previous technical and artistic boundaries, and has achieved it in ways that are fascinatingly beautiful, haunting, appealing, and awe-inspiring. He appeared as a finalist on Spain’s nationally-televised “Spanish Got Talent?” and has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
Since finishing his saxophone studies with honors at the Conservatory of Granada (Spain), Pedrosaxo (Pedro Rafael Garcia Moreno) chose the path of personal research, delving into the study of the saxophone and new forms of interpretation, imitation of sounds, world music, as well as performance practice with professional actors in Madrid. As a result, Pedrosaxo is a unique artist of extreme sensitivity to the world around him, able to describe the atmosphere of faraway places through the saxophone and his body, his music combines orginality and traditional saxophone.
Please come out for a great time. As always our events are FREE and open to the public. We'll see you there!
