The Assembly Saxophone Quartet is a professional chamber music ensemble whose mission is to promote music education and expand the enjoyment of music for people of all ages. Formed in 2003 by graduate students at the University of South Carolina, the Quartet’s principal objective was, and remains, to engage with audiences in public schools and communities, working with students and audiences that often have limited experience with chamber music or with the music of our time.
Assembly has completed week-long residencies in Minot, North Dakota, mid-state South Carolina, and southern North Carolina performing and teaching in area schools and offering evening recitals; additionally, the group has been featured in a performance with the Minot Symphony Orchestra and the Aiken Concert Band on Bob Mintzer’s “Rhythm of the Americas” concerto for saxophone quartet and orchestra/band. The Assembly Quartet was the inaugural performer in Conundrum Theater’s “Not So Classical” new music series in Columbia, SC. In past years, Assembly has been featured in the Columbia Museum of Art’s French Impressionist Art/Music Collaboration, on South Carolina public radio, and regularly at meetings of the North American Saxophone Alliance, the International Saxophone Symposium, and the World Saxophone Congress.
Committed to furthering the saxophone quartet repertoire, this ensemble has commissioned and premiered works by David Maslanka, Simon Fink, Benjamin Taylor, Girard Kratz, Sophocleous Charalambos and Peter Kay. For the 2014-15 season, they will be commissioning and giving the world premieres of works by Marilyn Shrude, Kurt Isaacson, and Shawn Allison. The Assembly Quartet is a versatile ensemble, comfortable performing a wide variety of styles from orchestral pops to virtuosic avant-garde.
