Utah Saxophone Quartet plans BYU recital March 1

Four accomplished saxophone players using four different registers make up the Utah Saxophone Quartet, composed of Brigham Young University School of Music alumni. The quartet will perform in the Madsen Recital Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center on Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

The Utah Saxophone Quartet was formed at BYU as an exemplary ensemble for BYU saxophone students and a performance outlet for the members involved.

Members of the quartet 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. Each member of the quartet is extensively active in the Utah recording scene, and all are mainstays in the Utah performance arena.

The quartet uses 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, and the quartet will often add clarinet quartets, flute quartets, or mixed woodwind quartets to concert programs.

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