January has been quite a busy month for Zzyzx Quartet! We performed for a packed audience at the Navy Band International Saxophone Symposium at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA on January 16th and I also performed with the Interservice Saxophone Ensemble featuring members of the premiere military bands. Zzyzx gave the world premiere of the Barlow Endowment Prize Composition by Ben Hjertmann in addition to performances of works by J.S. Bach and Jean Francaix. We will also be performing Ben Hjertmann’s new saxophone quartet “Awake, Alive, Amok, Ajar” at the NASA Biennial Conference in March. Last week, we were in residence at Baylor University in Waco, TX. We coached saxophone quartets, presented masterclasses and gave a performance as part of the Lyceum Concert Series. The program included works by David Maslanka, Ben Hjertmann, Jean Francaix, J.S. Bach, Marc Andre Hamelin and a world premiere by David Canfield.
