“If you want to hear what the saxophone might have sounded like in the hands of the masters (and a little jazz) hear these musicians!...”
— Nina Hodgson, Jazz

This outstanding local ensemble champions music that shatters stereotypes of the saxophone and helps anchor this instrument’s place in classical music. Their sparkling presentations of both original saxophone quartet compositions and transcriptions of classical favorites are sure to please.

Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings
Jean Jean: Quartet for Saxophone
Rudy Wiedoft: Saxophobia
Also, pieces by Duke Ellington and George Gershwin
