Event details

Saxophonist Otis Murphy, an international soloist and clinician in great demand and with wide recognition across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, is coming to Pittsburg! 

Murphy has been described by Fanfare Magazine as producing an extraordinarily golden tone. 

“Murphy’s ease, fluidity and perfect blending of registers on his instrument is extraordinary, as is his phrasing,” Fanfare wrote.   

According to Japan’s The Sax, “Otis Murphy’s performance made every saxophonist in attendance reconsider his or her awareness of what is a beautiful saxophone sound.” 

Murphy holds the position of Professor of Saxophone in the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, having joined the faculty at the age of 28 and becoming one of the youngest faculty members in its history.
