The University of Texas at Tyler has announced that the School of Performing Arts will offer saxophone and clarinet masterclasses, performing opportunities and concerts Saturday, April 13.

Single Reed Day will be held in the UT Tyler Center for the Musical Arts, led by Dr. Sarah Roberts, professor of saxophone and jazz studies, and Sharon Deuby, adjunct professor of clarinet. Masterclass registration is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. with workshops beginning at 9 a.m. The day will conclude with concerts at 4 p.m., featuring faculty and guest artists.

"The events of the day will be free and open to the public,'' Roberts said. "The masterclasses are open to any clarinet or saxophonist with at least one year of playing experience. Participants will work with professionals, listen to guest artist clinics and perform in mass instrument ensembles.''

Continuing Professional Education (CPA) credits will be offered to music educators who attend.

Guest artists will include Stanislav Chernyshev, principal clarinetist of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra; Adam Larson, an award-winning saxophonist who has produced four albums and performed across the country; and Trevor Davis, a saxophonist and clarinetist who has performed in over 100 cities as a member of two national touring shows.

Concerts will feature Roberts, Deuby and Davis at 4 p.m.; Chernyshev, 5:30 p.m.; and Larson performing with the UT Tyler Jazz Ensemble, 8 p.m. To register for Single Reed Day masterclasses, visit on.uttyler.edu/singlereedday.
