FORT MYERS, Fla. ( February 7 , 2014)
Shell Point Retirement Community continues its 2013-2014 Concerts & Conversations Series with Washington Saxophone Quartet on Monday, March 3 at 7 p.m. in The Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point.
The most widely-heard saxophone quartet in the United States, Washington Saxophone Quartet has performed recitals, informal concerts, and master classes in the United States, the Caribbean, and China, and played on radio and television worldwide for nearly 35 years. The ensemble taps into a rich repertoire from early music to newly commissioned works, and it draws on a wealth of experience to reach listeners of every age and background.
Since 1997, recorded arrangements by the Washington Saxophone Quartet have aired daily throughout the United States on National Public Radio’s broadcasts of “All Things Considered.” Concert audiences enjoy their connection to the Quartet when they discover they’ve been listening to their music during afternoon “drive time” – and it often comes as a surprise that they’ve been hearing four saxophones! 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 Shell Point Concerts & Conversations Series offers classical music lovers an opportunity to experience concerts in an intimate setting and enjoy a dessert reception with the musicians following the performance. Tickets are available for $25 each. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. in The Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point. Visit www.shellpoint.org/concerts or call the box office at (239) 454-2067.
