Mr. Fackelman is currently working with young musicians at the Nardin Academy and has taught saxophone at the University at Buffalo since 1991. He has completed nearly fifty arrangements for saxophone quartet and two for saxophone ensemble. Harry is active in the UB Sax Ensemble and teaches the jazz portion of Pop Music-From Ragtime to Rock at the University at Buffalo, with fellow members of the ASQ. He is very interested in jazz and R&B, and has performed with small groups and standard big bands. For fifteen years he has played for public and private occasions as a member of Special Edition.

When he is not touring, rehearsing, or performing, you will find Harry with Kathryn Wiese, a saxophonist and music teacher. Harry also enjoys skiing, the outdoors, and is likely to be dreaming about building a log home in the country. Indoor interests include attending concerts, dance performances, and relaxing with a good book or movie.

One of Mr. Fackelman's goals is to complete his contemporary jazz fusion piece for saxophone quartet. So far he has 48 measures.
