The Lee Saxophone Choir will present a concert on Monday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. under the direction of Clint Schmitt, a part-time faculty member of the Lee University School of Music. The performance will take place in Squires Recital Hall, located in Lee’s Humanities Center. 

“The Lee Saxes will perform a wide variety of works spanning five centuries,” said Mr. Schmitt. “From the 16th century’s Giovanni Gabrieli to the 21st century’s Eric Whitacre, they will present both original works and transcriptions.” 

The 14 group members will play together, as well as break into smaller ensembles. The concert will feature works by J.S. Bach, Duke Ellington, Louis Ganne, Paul Hindemith, William Pitts, and Fisher Tull. 

In addition to teaching at Lee University, Mr. Schmitt serves on the faculty at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Southern Adventist University. Outside of academia, Mr. Schmitt performs regularly in the area with groups such as the Chattanooga Symphony, The Impressions, and The Temptations. 

He has performed with the Alabama Symphony and Boston Pops Orchestra, and presented guest solo performances at the Southeastern Band conference, and Georgia Music Educator’s Conference, among others. 

Mr. Schmitt holds a Master in Music Education and a bachelor’s degree from Jacksonville State University, as well as a master’s degree in saxophone performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.

This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
