CEDARVILLE — Saxophonist Chet Jenkins and the Cedarville saxophone studio will present a free concert at noon April 2 in the Dixon Ministry Center Recital Hall. The concert is Cedarville’s first saxophone studio event and will feature a variety of classical and jazz pieces. Concert guests are invited to bring lunch; water is the only liquid permitted in the Recital Hall.
The saxophone studio includes Simon Yeh of California, Md., Julie Brummel of Sun Prairie, Wis., Kyle Darwin of Ferrisburgh, Vt., Jonathan Lyons of Bonaire, Ga., and Rony Gimenez of Beloit, Wis. Yeh, a junior, was recently the first Cedarville student selected to perform with the Intercollegiate Jazz Ensemble of Ohio.
Jenkins, an adjunct professor for music and worship, also helps commission new works for saxophone with other musicians around the world. On April 8, Jenkins will premiere a new saxophone piece with Cedarville’s symphonic band at a 7 p.m. concert in the Dixon Ministry Center Jeremiah Chapel.
