Lincolnville Live presents the North Florida Saxophone Quartet
Comprised of two women and two men, this quartet reflects reflects musical backgrounds and experience that cover much of the map of the world. All four musicians have performed in a variety of diverse musical ensembles but have made performing in this group a priority.
Their main specialty is a mix of audience-friendly music, most specifically arranged for this ensemble. From Bach to Disney and far beyond, audiences find themselves totally engaged. In addition to informative introductory announcements, quizzes are often added to test the knowledge of the listeners.
Each member also performs professionally on other instruments such as flute, clarinet, bassoon, or oboe and might be found in symphony orchestras, a pit orchestra of a Broadway show or in traditional swing big bands.
