  • Description

    This concert will feature our celebrated saxophone band, also known as The University of Florida All-Saxophone Festival Orchestra, which includes 25 musicians performing on every size saxophone imaginable, from the tiny sopranino to the monstrous bass saxophone. The combination of so many instruments with rich overtone series creates a sound that can quite often be mistaken for a symphonic orchestra or full wind ensemble. Programming for the ensemble takes advantage of this phenomenon and features transcriptions from the orchestral and wind band literature. This concert will include music by John Phillip Sousa, Ludwig von Beethoven, Peitro Mascagni, Astor Piazzolla, and the Brown Brothers.
