Albion native and world-class saxophonist Susan Fancher returned home today to perform in the Eastman at Albion Concert Series at the First Presbyterian Church.

She performed in a concert titled, “Sax Appeal.” She was joined by fellow saxophonist and Eastman professor Chien-Kwan Lin.

Fancher has a doctoral degree in music and teaches saxophone at Duke University.

The Albion High School Saxophone Ensemble also performed in the concert. That group includes Charlyne Olick, Sarah Graham, Matthew Flanagan, Emilie Barleben, Steven Stauss, Laura Flanagan and Nicholas Ettinger.

Proceeds from the concert go to the Albion High School Alumni Foundation for scholarships.
