Saxophonist Derek Brown will visit Arkansas State University to present a concert and a masterclass for jazz studies students Friday, Sept. 14, sponsored by the Department of Music.
The masterclass will be at 11 a.m. in the Band Room, and the public concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall. Admission is free.
Crossing genres from jazz to classical funk, without looping or electronic effects, Brown's playing style must be seen to be believed. From his 30 million views across social media to his interviews on international television and NPR's Weekend Edition, the Billboard-charting Brown and his one-of-a-kind solo "BeatBox Sax" project has been exploding across the world music scene.
