Music lovers are invited to enjoy the bright, brassy sounds of the saxophone in a variety of different music genres when the Capitol Quartet plays at Frostburg State University’s Performing Arts Center at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 4.
Featuring saxophonists who are alumni of premier military bands and faculty from some of America’s leading music schools, the Capitol Quartet brings together top talent for spirited and unforgettable performances. The group’s innovative program repertoire typically features special arrangements of timeless masterpieces by composers such as Bach, Beethoven and Mozart, as well as classical and jazz standards and contemporary works for saxophone. The Capitol Quartet is also committed to expanding the repertoire of the saxophone quartet. They have recently commissioned four new works for saxophone quartet by composers Mark Wieser, Charles Ruggiero, James Curnow and John Fitzpatrick.
