James Houlik, Concert Saxophone Pioneer, Performs September 22, 23

So just to remind you all, James Houlik, or "The world's great saxophone virtuoso," according to The London Daily Mail, will be performing tomorrow (9/22) at 12:00 PM for a free concert at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art in Auburn.

If you want to experience, according to The Washington Post, "A performance that might exhaust one's supply of superlatives," then you should come.

But don't take my word for it. The New York Times has said, "With his genial commentary and virtuoso performing talents, Mr. Houlik could probably convince any doubter that the saxophone deserves a prominent place in any concertgoer's heart."

This "genuinely brilliant player" (New York Magazine) will be appearing four times publicly in the next two days. Here is his schedule:
  • Thursday (9/22) at the museum, 12-1 PM. This concert is free.
  • Thursday for a masterclass at Auburn University, 6 PM, Rm. 102, Goodwin Hall
  • Friday (9/23) for a masterclass at Legacy Hall in RiverCenter, Columbus, Georgia, 2:30 - 4 PM Eastern Time. Contact Amy Griffiths at if you will attend.
  • Friday at Legacy Hall again to perform at 7:30 PM Eastern Time. This concert is free.
See you there.
