The underappreciated saxophone uniquely fills the sonic space between brass and woodwind. The all-saxophone Capitol Quartet will emphasize the versatility of this amazing instrument when it performs at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, on Monday, Feb. 25
The quartet’s Music at Noon: The Logan Series appearance takes place at noon in the McGarvey Commons of the college’s Reed Union Building. Admission is free and free reserved parking will be available in the Reed lot.
Since its formation in 1991, Capitol Quartet has performed regularly at major concert venues throughout the United States, earning wide acclaim for its innovative style. “I have had the great pleasure of performing with the Capitol Quartet,” the late composer and entertainer Marvin Hamlisch once said of the ensemble. “Their fabulous sound, professionalism and innovative program all combine for a wonderfully entertaining musical experience.”
Capitol Quartet is Christopher Creviston, soprano saxophone; Joseph Lulloff, alto saxophone; David Stambler, tenor saxophone; and Andrew Dahlke, baritone saxophone. While in Erie, the quartet members, like all Music at Noon performers, will present two programs for students at the City of Erie School District’s Diehl Elementary.
