David Liebman Big Band

NEA (National Endowment of the Arts) Jazz Master Award recipient Dave Liebman will present a concert by the SGA Saxophone Studio’s third annual SRU Saxophone Workshop.
As well as a featured concert, lectures and educational workshops by Liebman and the remarkably accomplished band members are presented (at 2:30pm and 3:30pm, both in the Swope Recital Hall). Almost all of the members have been with Dave since 2000 or longer. Their career experiences are often presented in several formats to benefit and interact with students. Their accomplishments include performing for decades with Quincy Jones, Tito Puente, Barbra Streisand, the Rolling Stones, the Count Basie Orchestra, the Bob Mintzer Big Band, and several other iconic ensembles. The Dave Liebman Big Band under the direction of Gunnar Mossblad has released four CDs and one DVD. Admission free.
