Two saxophone quartets will perform pieces by 20th-century French composers in the Saxophone Chamber Night Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.
Admission is free and open to the public.
"The saxophone is said to be the instrument that most mimics the human voice," said D. B. Long, director of the Saxophone Chamber Night. "So, people really like the sound of the instrument."
Participation in the performance is a requirement for students involved in the concert. It teaches the students to work in smaller groups and to listen for basic elements of music such as tone, harmony and melody, Long said.
Students participating in the concert include Chris Black, Jory Woodis, Blacke Wilkins, Rachelle Reid, Chad Ostermiller, Rick Nobbe, Megan Fisher and Conrad Allen.
They will perform pieces from Eugene Bozza, Claude Debussy, Faustin and Maurice Jeanjean, Robert Linn, Pierre Vellones and Jean Meyer.
