LINCOLN, Neb.— The TCB Saxophone Quartet will present a featured recital on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. in Westbrook Recital Hall on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.


They will be featuring an eclectic program of transcriptions, jazz work and original, classical works for the saxophone. The program will include works by: Vellones, Glazounov, Woods, Paich and an original transcription (performed from original manuscript) of a Bach Prelude and Fugue, arranged by the great Percy Grainger.


The TCB Saxophone Quartet was formed in 2016 with a desire to share the beauty of the saxophone with audiences of all ages. Paul Haar (soprano), Nick May (alto), Wade Howles (tenor), and Bobby Fuson (baritone) joined forces to create music with a renewed focus on melody and musical line. Thus, began a new saxophone quartet that is rooted in old traditions.


TCBSQ uses their blend of resonant tone and virtuosic technique to bring a new appreciation to traditional repertoire, while building a new audience from those unfamiliar with the saxophone in a chamber setting. The ensemble is also charting new territory for the saxophone by commissioning new works from composers such as Daniel Baldwin and David Von Kampen.


The performance is free and open to the public. This performance will also be live webcast. Visit the day of the performance.
