St. Paul’s organist and choirmaster Karel Paukert has planned an exciting festival of music to celebrate the parish’s Holtkamp and Hradetzky organs. Karel has assembled an impressive group of celebrity musicians who will offer a number of recitals over seven dates from late September through October.
The festival opens on Sunday, September 29, at 4 p.m. with an Organ Plus recital featuring saxophonist Noa Even. Karel will accompany this stellar artist as they perform, among others, two new works by Frank Wiley and Buck McDaniel.
Noa Even is a Cleveland-based saxophonist, educator, and presenter dedicated to sparking deeper interest in the arts of today. Her saxophone duo, Ogni Suono, has toured commissioned works and taught master classes across the United States, Europe, and most recently, Taiwan and China. Patchwork, Noa’s saxophone and drum set duo, also collaborates regularly with composers to continue expanding the eclectic body of music for their instrumentation. In 2018, Noa was featured as a concerto soloist at the North American Saxophone Alliance Biennial Conference in Cincinnati. She teaches saxophone and co-directs the New Music Ensemble at Kent State University and serves as Co-director of Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project (CUSP), a non-profit she co-founded. Noa is a Conn-Selmer and Vandoren artist.
