The University of Minnesota Saxophone Quartet premiered my piece, Sax Transcends for Saxophone Quartet & Narrator, on March 16th, 2019, to an audience of saxophone enthusiasts. The event was the North American Saxophone Alliance's Regional Conference. Region 3 includes ND, SD, NE, MN, IA members. A great many colleges, professional and educator saxophonists convened in the music building at the U of M in Minneapolis for the weekend event. Sax Transcends for Saxophone Quartet & Narrator tells the life story of Adolf Sax, the inventor of saxophones as well as the modern bass clarinet and a family of brass instruments called "Saxhorns," which evolved into today's Flugelhorn.
