Dedicated to expanding the sonic boundaries of solo saxophone performance since 2006, New York-based Sam Newsome creates improvisatory art music expressed through a personalized sound palette of extended techniques where jazz functions as a foundational resource. Newsome’s seventh solo release, “Chaos Theory: Song Cycles for Prepared Saxophone” (2019) features concepts and methodologies which allow him to delve further into the sonic crevices of his instrument.

Organized by Jason Finkelman, Director of Global Arts Performance Initiatives in the School of Music. Sponsored in part by the School of Music and the George A. Miller Programs Committee, with in-kind support provided by WEFT, 90.1 FM.
