Justin Sarns

By professional reviewed invitation the Grand Valley State University Hyperbaton Quartet has been selected to perform the Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra (1995) by Phillip Glass at the annual North American Saxophone Alliance region five conference at Northeastern Illinois University. The North American Saxophone Alliance is a professional organization of University Professors, public school teachers, students, and professional saxophonists. The annual conference for region five is hosted by the Music Department at Northeastern Illinois University. At the conference various masterclasses, sessions, and performances will occur that will aid in the professional development of saxophone students. The quartet by Phillip Glass is one of the cornerstones of the saxophone repertoire and it is a great honor to get to perform this in front of a group of peers and professional saxophonists.
