Horizon Stage Presents: Proteus Saxophone Quartet
February 17, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$30 – $35
Instrumental Saxophone Music
The Proteus Saxophone Quartet is redefining the traditional saxophone chamber music experience with their high energy, intense, varied performances. Named after the god of the sea, being modular and versatile, the Proteus Saxophone Quartet explores the numerous instrumental combinations of the saxophone family through the creation and performance of chamber music. Since forming in 2011 these four Canadian saxophonists have developed an immediate artistic bond and vision and have committed themselves to presenting lively, diverse, and beautiful concerts. They have performed throughout Canada, France, and the United States. In an attempt to advance new works for saxophone quartets without adhering to a singular aesthetic or stylistic genre, they have collaborated with diverse guest artists and composers, including Sean Perrin, François Rossé, Robert Lemay, and Denis Levaillant.
