RENDEZ-VOUS AVEC PATRICIA
This Sunday 28 May At 18h30.
Our Guest Of Honor:
The Many Faces of the Saxophone: from Classical to Jazz to Contemporary and Beyond.
Dennis Shafer is a saxophonist of many styles. Founder of the Back Bay Saxophone Quartet and the Skyline Quintet in Boston, Dennis has spent the last two years diversifying and perfecting his musical interests in Paris. Studying with Jean-Michel Goury at the National Regional Conservatory of Boulogne-Billancourt, he has expanded his knowledge and practice of contemporary techniques of the saxophone, while also cultivating new experiences with Egyptian musicians and dancers in Paris. He will present his work and give some background on the history of the instrument to answer the question "What can the saxophone NOT do?"
Dennis will play examples of classical, contemporary, jazz, and Arab saxophone on the soprano, alto, and baritone saxophones and also will have a special guest, Per WALLMYR, Swedish jazz saxophonist.
