THE WOODLANDS, TX – On November 15th, The Woodlands Symphony and Glade Arts Foundation will host Woody Witt, internationally recognized tenor saxophonist and resident of The Woodlands. The program titled “Jazz in the Woods” features selections from Woody’s upcoming album, Live at Cezanne along with an evening of exciting improvisational art.

Woody Witt has been an increasingly significant musical force during the past decade as a tenor-saxophonist, a composer and educator. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Woody chose the clarinet in fourth grade, quickly switching to saxophone a year later. A professional musician from the age of 16, he studied at the University of Houston, earned a Master’s degree in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas, and a doctorate from the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music. He has taught at Houston Community College since 2000, is an Affiliate Artist at the University of Houston, and has conducted a countless number of workshops and master classes throughout the United States, France, Romania, Germany and Asia.
