Northwestern State University Saxophone Studio
Welcome to the Northwestern State University Saxophone Studio Website!
The Northwestern State University Saxophone Studio comprises saxophone students of Dr. Paul J. Forsyth, Professor of Saxophone and Jazz Studies. These students, most of whom are Music Majors, help makeup the saxophone sections within the four NSU Concert Bands, the NSU Jazz Orchestra, the NSU Jazz Combos, the NSU Saxophone Quartets, and the “Spirit of Northwestern” Marching Band. The Saxophone Studio is active in performances throughout the school year including the annual NSU Saxophone Studio Recital and NSU SaxFest. At the NSU SaxFest, we have welcomed guest artists from around the world including Derek Brown and Joe Lulloff. The 2017 SaxFest featured world-renowned saxophonist, Kenneth Tse. Please click here for more information regarding the upcoming SaxFest. The event is free and open to the public.
Whether it is ensemble concerts, student recitals, the NSU SaxFest, or the Saxophone Studio Recital, NSU Saxophone students are actively performing for the Natchitoches community throughout the year. Click on the facebook link below to follow us on Facebook and hear about our upcoming performances!
