Performance: Foundry Saxophone Quartet
Time: 3:00 pm-4:00 pm
Comprised of saxophonists Max Schwimmer, Mallory Kokus, Kara Cook, and Andrew Studenski, the Hartford-based Foundry Saxophone Quartet will perform a variety of music centered on original classical works, as well as a mix of jazz, folk, and ragtime. Founding member Max Schwimmer brings a sense of musical adventure to each performance. A classically-trained saxophonist, he has performed through the United States as well as internationally in Italy and the Ukraine. As a member of the Asylum Quartet, which received the Grand Prize in the 2014 International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition, he received praise for “nonstop virtuoso skills” (Times Herald-Record). Mr. Schwimmer’s arrangements for saxophone ensembles include works by Charles Ives, Philip Glass, Beethoven, Debussy, Franck, Gershwin, Piazzolla, Zorn, Imogen Heap, Ljova, and Louis Thomas Hardin (“Moondog”). Snow date is Saturday, March 7.
