HAMMOND – On Saturday, March 24, the Southeastern Louisiana University Department
of Music and Performing Arts will host the third annual Single Reed Day in Pottle
Music Building from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Single Reed Day is for clarinet and saxophone players of all ages or anyone who is interested in those instruments, said Southeastern Clarinet Professor Victor Drescher.
“This event regularly draws students from local middle and high schools and colleges across the south, as well as adult music enthusiasts,” Drescher said. “It offers an excellent opportunity to showcase talented musicians from Southeastern and provides feedback from other nationally recognized teachers.”
Events include a feature concert given by Drescher and Saxophone Professor Brina Bourliea Faciane, accompanied by Associate Professor of Piano Henry Jones, as well as guest artists Jon Noffsinger from the University of Alabama and Mary Druhan from the University of Texas A&M - Commerce.
Additional events include masterclasses on various aspects of music performance by Southeastern faculty and guest artists, exhibits where participants can explore different instruments and accessories, performances by Southeastern students, and a clarinet choir or saxophone ensemble in which participants can play.
Participants can register the day of the event at 8:30 a.m. in Pottle Auditorium. The registration fee is $10 and includes pizza provided by the National Honorary Band Fraternity Kappa Kappa Psi.
