Lunch with the Arts: Lee Patrick and Loren Tice
Wednesday, October 17 | 12pm
$5 at the door
Patrick and Tice have been performing together for more than thirty years, with Patrick on the alto saxophone and Tice on the piano. In 2009, they began playing for senior and church groups in Central Kentucky. For these performances, they develop a theme and prepare an hour-long musical program related to this theme. Recent themes have included From Russia with Love, Legends in Music, Italian Splendor, and This Good Earth.
Lee Patrick began playing the saxophone in the 10th grade and has been trying to get better ever since. Through the years, he has encouraged countless others to do likewise. There is a rumor that he has adapted more music for the saxophone than anyone else in history. A vast catalog of publications supports this rumor.
Loren Tice started as pianist, then added organ. He has conducted numerous community choral groups and wrote music criticism for the Herald-Leader. Because of Patrick and Tice’s many years as colleagues at Transylvania University, saxophonists have claimed the lion’s share of his enjoyment. Added to this enjoyment is a long association with the summer Saxophone Institute, founded and directed by Dr. Patrick. Professor Tice helps lead the distinguished early-music vocal ensemble Musick’s Company.
