When one thinks of saxophone music, one of the first things that comes to mind is Kenny G. For years, Kenny G has entertained us with many of his wonderfully relaxing and entertaining smooth saxophone pieces. Though saxophone music may not be very much in style these days, its music never fails to evoke a sense of peace to those who hear it.
If you are a fan of smooth jazz music, then there is a chance that you would already know how music from a saxophone quartet sounds like. A saxophone quartet is usually made up of one B soprano, one E alto, one B tenor and one E baritone. For those who are curious to see how a saxophone quartet sound like, then make a date with The Actors Studio this 15th January 2012 as the Birdian Saxophone Quartet will be performing at The Actors Studio @ Lot 10. The performance will also see the quartet perform with a bunch of sax friends and will feature music from Leroy Anderson, Joe Hisaishi and many more.
Founded in 2000 and led by founder/saxophonist Ian Chan Wing Hang, this group has a passion in promoting interest in and appreciation of classical saxophone music. The Birdian Saxophone Quartet also regularly performs a wide range of light classical, jazz standards, popular and film music repertoires at different occasions. It also conducts workshops for various school band camps and music festivals within Kuala Lumpur. Tickets are by a minimum donation of RM 20 and can be purchased at The Actors Studio. The group will be performing two sessions, that is at 3.00 pm and 8.00 pm. For more information, please call 03 2142 2009 or 2143 2009.
