Kyle Jones, Kingsport native and classical saxophonist will present two concerts on July 14th and 15th.
The first of the two performances will take place on Friday, July 14th at the Next Door at the Acoustic Coffeehouse. Kyle will be joined by another Kingsport musician and longtime friend, Tommy Boyer, to present a set of contemporary solo music for saxophone and percussion. Both musicians have selected works that highlight the broad spectrum of color and expression available on their respective instruments. The performance begins at 9:00 pm; there is no cover charge.
On Saturday, July 15th, Kyle will be joined by collaborative pianist Robert Jeter to present a recital of classical saxophone repertoire, both old and new. The program will consist of works by Decruck, Franck, and Larsen. The recital will take place at St. John’s Episcopal Church at 7:30 pm. There is a suggested donation of $5; students are free.
