BYU's Utah Saxophone Quartet performs March 1 in the Madsen

Brigham Young University School of Music presents the Utah Saxophone Quartet Wednesday, March 1, at 5:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The Utah Saxophone Quartet was formed at BYU in 1983 by Ray Smith as a performance outlet for BYU saxophone students.

All of the members are BYU School of Music alumni. They have been friends since high school and have studied with several teachers, including Steve Allen and David Randall, former director of the BYU School of Music.

The quartet has always used the French saxophone quartet instrumentation with Ray Smith on soprano, Daron Bradford on alto, David Feller on tenor and Gaylen Smith on baritone. All of the members of the ensemble double on multiple woodwinds.

For more information, contact Ray Smith at (801) 422-3391.
