The Upcoming Season

We're excited about the new season (2014-15) as we the near the 40th year of performing as the Washington Saxophone Quartet in 2016.  This year (2014) is the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone. His exact birthdate is November 6, which just happens to be the same date for John Philip Sousa. We just happen to have an arrangement of his greatest march, The Stars and Strips Forever. Always a good crowd pleaser!

We kicked off the season and Sax's birthday in February at The Barns at Wolf Trap with a program celebrating the instrument and its versatility in various genres.
This fall, we'll continue with that celebration featuring works old and new from Belgium, France and the United States ... all important countries in the saxophone's development. We'll also bring back some favorites that the quartet has enjoyed in the past.

Below is the schedule at this point. Hope to see you at our concerts!! We'll be updating on our website
