Joseph Murphy, a saxophonist, will accompany the Stambaugh Youth Concert Band in a 7:30 p.m. concert Tuesday at Stambaugh Auditorium, 1000 Fifth Ave. It will be the SYCB’s first concert of the season.

Murphy is the saxophone professor at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania. He received a Fulbright Award for study in Bordeaux, France. Murphy has premiered more than 40 new works.

The concert will include Gustav Holtz’s “Second Suite in F,” “Chorale and Shaker Dance” by John Zdechlik, “Fusion” by Brian Balmages, and Dennis Sichner’s “Fantasy and Chorale,” featuring Murphy.

Also on the program are Morten Lauridsen’s “Contre Qui, Rose,” arranged by H. Robert Reynolds, and “Patapan,” arranged by Tom Wallace. The latter will feature the Stambaugh Youth Concert Band Percussion Ensemble, directed by Tyler Husosky.

The SYCB is under the direction of John Veneskey, Brandt Payne, Husosky and Eric Bable. Thomas Groth is the executive director.

The band consists of top high school musicians from Northeastern Ohio and Northwestern Pennsylvania who pass an audition. It rehearses from September to April and presents two concerts annually at Stambaugh Auditorium.
