The Washington Saxophone Quartet is the most widely heard saxophone quartet in the United States. Formed in 1976, WSaxQ has performed recitals, concerts, and master classes in the United States, the Caribbean, and China. The quartet has also been featured on radio and television worldwide including NPR’s “Performance Today” and “Voice of America.”
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. In concert, the quartet guides the audience with commentary and insight into the music. It is the goal of the Washington Saxophone Quartet to enlighten its listeners and to entertain with the highest levels of performance.
