This is a unique and special event for our saxophone faithful. On Sunday, November 4, we will be hosting the Oasis Sax Quartet from 1-3pm. The Oasis Saxophone Quartet has been noted as being one of the finest saxophone ensembles in the WORLD........and they're right here in St. Louis at Saxquest!!
Founded in 2007, the Oasis Quartet has received rave reviews of its live performances as well as for its innovative and creative clinic and concert programming. Oasis is dedicated to the exploration of important contemporary works for saxophone quartet, while retaining a strong foundation in standard repertoire. The diverse and wide-ranging interests of its members - including jazz performance and history, contemporary techniques and notation, ethnomusicology, and regular contributions to scholarly and trade journals - contribute a broad array of influences that lend a unique depth and perspective to Oasis Quartet performances.
