If you are interested I will be performing a concert this afternoon with my quartet, Nexas. It will be at The Independent Theatre in North Sydney. Here are the details:
The Nexas Quartet and Emily Granger (Harp) evoke a journey back in time to the bustling streets of the French capital in An American in Paris. This unique collaboration will provide fascinating new renditions of works by Gershwin, Brubeck, Ravel and Debussy.
At the forefront of chamber music, Nexas Quartet is focused on promoting the musical diversity of the saxophone by showcasing its versatility and ability to cross genres. In 2017 Nexas embarked upon a new collaboration with opera star Peter Colman-Wright resulting in their Weimar-Era themed ABC Classic release 'Ballades of the Good Life '. (4.5/5 from Limelight Magazine). Other 2017 Highlights included performing at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music (Townsville), Adelaide Cabaret Festival, performing Warren Barker's Capriccio for Sax Quartet and Wind Band at the Melbourne Recital Centre and Art not Apart (Canberra). Emily Granger (Kansas City, USA) has performed as Principal Harp with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria. As a chamber musician, Emily is the founding member of the Chicago Harp Quartet and has performed recitals at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center and the Sydney Opera House.
