Ryan Clever Plays Alto Sax at World Premiere

Sophomore Ryan Clever, as principal alto saxophone of the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony, performed in the "World Premiere" of Ascent by composer Jake Runestad at the Lassiter Concert Hall in Marietta on December 2. 
In addition to the world premiere, the AYWS also performed two other works by Runestad, the wind band classic American Overture for Band by Joseph Willcox Jenkins, and American Symphony by Adam Schoenberg.  We are proud of Ryan for representing Pinecrest among Atlanta's finest young musicians.
