Description
Since forming in November 2010, The Donald Sinta Quartet (DSQ) has achieved great renown internationally for their recitals, concerto performances, and championing of cutting-edge new repertoire.

All members of the group studied with the legendary University of Michigan saxophone professor Donald Sinta during various degree programs. The quartet's name is in recognition, admiration and appreciation for their great mentor.

Winners of the 2012 North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet competition, the group was recently featured in recitals at the Paris Conservatory, Versailles Conservatory, and the Selmer Paris showroom. Returning to the competition circuit, the DSQ were name the Alice Coleman Grand Prize Winners of the 2013 Coleman Chamber Music Competition.

DSQ members include Dan Graser, visiting professor of music at Grand Valley State University; Zach Stern; Joe Girard; and Danny Hawthorne-Foss.

Open to the public. Free admission. For more information, please call (616) 331-3484 or visit www.gvsu.edu/music.
