Saxophone Workshop Day 2

Today we began with Dr. Vicki Purslow, SOU College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean, rehearsing the orchestra on her new arrangement of Sousa's Liberty Bell March to be premiered Thursday.

Composer Todd Barton stopped by to talk about his piece Gesangla Mediation on the Sichuan Earthquake. The students will perform Gesangla on Thursday.
