Live! music at Thurston Middle School features renowned saxophonist Douglas Masek

Laguna Live! recently brought internationally renowned saxophonist, Douglas Masek, to lead an assembly for Thurston Middle School. Masek, a highly sought after master teacher, guided the Thurston students through the history of the saxophone, its creator and evolution to contemporary usage and sounds. Highly skilled on the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, Masek used all four to showcase different genres.

When asked about the event, Masek responded, “What a wonderfully fun morning it was for me! I was quite impressed with the young, ‘hungry for knowledge’ students, their long attention span and the incredible amount of thought-provoking questions asked.”

Laguna Live! will be organizing more of these assemblies going forward, and thank the Festival of Arts Foundation, the Assistance League of Laguna Beach and the Laguna Beach Rotary Club for supporting their education mission.
