Founded in 2011 in New York City, the NEW THREAD QUARTET is committed to the creation and performance of saxophone quartet repertoire from New York’s burgeoning new music scene. Members of the ensemble are active as composers, performers, educators, and industry professionals and hold degrees from the most prestigious conservatories and music schools in the US and Europe. In its inaugural year, New Thread presented 5 concerts of works by New York composers, with performances at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, SUNY Potsdam, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, and locally at South Oxford and Vaudeville Park, Brooklyn. The New Thread Quartet was selected from an international pool of saxophonists and performed at the World Saxophone Congress 2012, in St. Andrews, Scotland.

This program is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and with support from D’Addario/Rico Reeds.
