Saxophobia Performs in Costa Rica


The Eastern Kentucky University Saxophone Studio received an invitation to participate in the Promising Artists of the 21st Century program, hosted by the Centro Cultural of Costa Rica. Seniors Isamu Haynes-Sunayama and Zachary Hammond, incoming freshman Joel Nelson, and ensemble director Larry Nelson were able to make the trip in mid-June. It was truly an honor for an EKU ensemble to participate in a program that includes groups from such prestigious colleges as the New England Conservatory, New York University, and Louisiana State University. In all, Saxophobia gave eight performances and three master classes during the week long trip.
