New York-based saxophonist and composer Erin Rogers will headline the annual Shockingly Modern Saxophone Festival at Augustana College The festival celebrates new and experimental works for saxophone. Solo and chamber work will be featured that explores the nearly unlimited sonic potential of the saxophone through new works, improvisation, electronic music and multimedia. "There are many saxophone festivals and many new music festivals, but as far as I know this is the only event in the United States dedicated specifically to new music for saxophone," said Augustana's Dr. Randall Hall, festival founder and artistic director. The two-day event will offer several concerts, masterclasses and workshop. All events are free and open to the public. Most events will take place in Wallenberg Hall in the Denkmann Memorial Building, or Larson Hall inside the Bergendoff Hall of Fine Arts.
