Here we are performing at Bonham Middle School on Friday morning:
The quartet has been really busy the past week traveling to local schools and presenting short concerts as well as answering questions that the students have about saxophone and music topics. We have had a blast performing and the response has been great from students and directors alike! So far we have presented seven concerts at five schools and we have a few more performances lined up for this week.
Here is the final poster for our upcoming quartet recital on June 26th. Thank you Brianne Butterworth for the awesome pictures!

Mackey - Strange Humors
Maslanka - Mountain Roads
It will be a difficult program, especially getting to the end of the Maslanka with some juice left to get through the closing slow chorale - we couldn't be more excited though. The next two weeks, we have scheduled short performances at local middle schools and high schools - so far we have four scheduled, with more directors contacting us everyday. I'll be sure to keep this blog updated about the progress of the quartet recital as well as some other exciting projects and events that I have planned for the summer.

The program will be:
