The Potsdam High School Saxophone Quartet recently played at Crane's Saxophone Chamber Music Festival, which brought together saxophonists from around the country and was organized by Crane Saxophone professor Christopher Creviston. The Potsdam high school group performed "Chorale and Canon," by world-renowned composer Arthur Frackenpohl. Students in the Wind Ensemble as well as the sax quartet were treated to a session at the high school with Mr. Frackenpohl during which he spoke about his composition and made some suggestions to the quartet about the performance of his piece.
