Gold Canyon Arts Council presents the Italian Saxophone Quartet on February 16

From Italy comes four virtuoso saxophonists playing their soprano, alto, tenor and baritone instruments in perfect synchrony and harmony.

Brought to the area by the Gold Canyon Arts Council, the Italian Saxophone Quartet will perform on Friday, February 16, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. at the Gold Canyon United Methodist Church, 6640 S. Kings Ranch Rd. in Gold Canyon.

Their audiences are treated to an eclectic repertoire of Broadway, Latin, pop, and even film scores, all played with flair and great showmanship.

The Italian Saxophone Quartet has won music competitions, played with international orchestras and performed in the world’s most famous concert halls. They have won Italy’s first prize, the “Premier Ancona,” and perform with the Milan Symphony Orchestra at the Teatro alla Scala.

The Monterey Peninsula Herald wrote, “Don’t think you like saxophone quartets?..think again…a revelation….knocked us out from the very first notes!” Italy’s Messaggero Veneto wrote, “seductive and impassioned, a scintillating whirlwind of a performance.”
