3RDTHURSDAYNOON

The 3rdthursdayNoon brown bag lunch series will resume on March 15, 2018 with the “Occasional Saxophone Quartet”. The Noon hour program is free to the public.

Occasional Saxophone Quartet: four seasoned musicians who met through their involvement in numerous local ensembles (from the Harrisburg Concert Band to Gettysburg Big Band, Will Fisher Orchestra, Carlisle Town Band, etc.). Retired music teacher Doug Riley will narrate this journey back in time, accompanied by signature repertoire and “the hits” of the era.

They will perform a fun and informative program called “The Golden Age of the Saxophone” featuring music from the heyday (1910s – 1940s) of the saxophone’s popularity. It includes arrangements for saxophone quartet ranging from hymns of the era to ragtime, Sousa marches, and novelty tunes. The Quartet will also bring along a few visual gems of the times, including humorous vintage advertising slogans like “Playing the saxophone requires no practice at all.”
