Ann Arbor, Michigan -
Today has finally arrived! The official announcement of American icon, GRAMMY, PULITZER, and ACADEMY AWARD winning composer JOHN CORIGLIANO’s new saxophone concerto to be premiered January 14-16, 2021 with the incredible San Francisco Symphony and conductor Giancarlo Guerrerro!
The work features the soprano, alto and baritone saxophones across three movements, entitled “Leaps”, “Lines”, and “Licks”, respectively. I can’t tell you how honored and thrilled I am to share this project with you. The practicing has already begun on this monster, so if you need me this summer and Fall, I’ll be in the woodshed. Much love to all!
