The Guardian has called the quartet “One of Europe’s most distinguished new music ensembles.”
Here’s a little more information about them:
The Delta Saxophone Quartet – ‘40 Roaring Years’ of uplifting performance & creativity.
In September 1983 four young Guildhall School of Music & Drama students formed a saxophone quartet which in 1984 became The Delta Saxophone Quartet.
40 years later the quartet is still passionate about live performance and stretching the musical boundaries of a chamber music group. Forming innovative partnerships with contemporary composers, promoters and record labels the quartet has created a worldwide reputation for its dynamic live concerts, workshops and its catalogue of groundbreaking recordings.
This is a not-to-be missed opportunity. One of the best contemporary music ensembles in Europe performing on our doorstep, collaborating with Richmond School and Sixth Form College students – and entry is free!
