Well into our 2015 Concert/Clinic series it's going to be a busy April here at Saxquest with 3 great events on our calendar. To kick April off, you’re all invited to a special wine (or non-alcoholic drink of choice) and cheese open house hosted by the Andreas Eastman Company on Thursday of this week from 4-6PM at Saxquest. We’ll host Roger Greenberg, Professor Emeritus at the University of Northern Colorado, who will be talking about saxophone manufacturing and Eastman’s role in the development of the new 52nd Street line of professional saxophones. We’ll also have an entire fleet of the new 52nd Street saxophones and other Eastman instruments for you to try including the new 52nd Street bari sax and one piece curved neck soprano.
Roger Greenberg is a classical saxophonist with a jazz background. He has been a soloist several times at the World Saxophone Congress in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan, and continues to be active nationally as a soloist and clinician. His playing credits are as diverse as having been a member of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to being a longtime member of the Harvey Pittel Saxophone Quartet, an internationally recognized touring ensemble.
It’s with great honor that we present Roger Greenberg here at Saxquest! I hope you are able to stop in and take advantage of this rare opportunity to meet and talk directly to this important voice in our saxophone community and learn more about his involvement in designing the 52nd Street saxophone brand. This will be an informal gathering so please bring your mouthpieces to play test instruments and have a good time hanging out for an afternoon of saxophone insanity!!!
