Description:

To celebrate the university’s 50th Anniversary and the 50 years that he has played the alto saxophone, Jeremy Brown has curated his most unique solo recital in a career spanning 34 years and more than 1000 concerts.

Tonight, Brown performs within a chamber group, as a solo artist and with electronics, in a program that includes the world premiere of new works for saxophone, by Canadian composers Brent Lee and Robert Lemay, who will be in attendance.

Improvisation, jazz, classical… all performed on the sonorous saxophone (and perhaps a bit of flute).
