About the Kenari Saxophone Quartet
Formed in 2012 at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, the award-winning Kenari Quartet has taken pride in delivering engaging performances through creative programming and compelling stage presence. The versatility of the saxophone is integral to the quartet, which presents music from a wide range of genres that is well informed by all periods of classical music as well as jazz, soul, and other genres. The group has earned top prizes at the M-Prize Chamber Music Competition, the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition, the Plowman Chamber Music Competition, Chesapeake Bay International Chamber Music Competition, and the Coleman Chamber Music Competition.
"Our primary goal is to spread awareness of the saxophone’s versatility, while at the same time, sharing our love for music and its power to inspire, unite, and fulfill. We accomplish this through programming a variety of works—including classical transcriptions, original repertoire, commissions, avant-garde contemporary pieces, as well as arrangements of jazz and popular tunes—all chosen for the particular ways that they impact us as performers and for the various emotional implications that they create for the listener."
