Guest Lecture 4:00pm - Organ Hall
The scope of the lecture will cover a variety of topics related to the commission and performance of new works by contemporary composers, trends in American and European saxophone music, and a detailed discussion on career development for the performance artist. As a demonstrative example, I will discuss the process of commissioning, performing, and ultimately funding a recording through the use of crowd-sourcing of a recent work by U.S. Composer Alan Theisen: "Arcanum" for solo Alto Saxophone.
