The Washington Saxophone Quartet

July 26, 2016 • 7:30pm

WSaxQ is the most widely heard saxophone quartet in the United States, airing daily on National Public Radio’s broadcasts of “All Things Considered.”

The ensemble taps into a rich repertoire, from early music to newly commissioned works, and draws on a wealth of experience to reach listeners of every age and background. The instruments evoke the refined sounds of a string quartet, the rich harmonies of an organ prelude, and the excitement of a jazz sax section.

“…the Quartet demonstrated the compelling qualities of its instruments…the players transported the saxophone far beyond its usual role in jazz, blues and swing.”—The Washington Post
