On November 2, 2017 the Hawaii Saxophone Foundation sponsored a free masterclass with saxophonist David Sanborn at the Blue Note Hawaii for a small and intimate group of saxophonists. By request, the audience was limited and was comprised of saxophonists of various levels from high school, college, professional and semi-retired music educators.
Mr. Sanborn discussed his musical influences and stories of his career. He talked about his concept of sound and approach to playing the saxophone. Mr. Sanborn also opened the session to answer questions from every individual in attendance. He was open and candid and gave his sincere and honest answer with everyone.
The Hawaii Saxophone Foundation is extremely grateful to Mr. Sanborn for his graciousness in hosting a masterclass and would like to extend a sincere MAHALO to the Blue Note Hawaii for accommodating this event.
