Comprised of saxophonists who are teaching faculty at outstanding music schools, the Capitol Quartet has captured the imagination of critics and audiences alike. Since its formation in 1991, the Capitol Quartet has performed regularly at major concert venues throughout the United States, earning wide acclaim for the ensemble's musical versatility and innovative style. The Quartet's February 2007 performance of the Philip Glass Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra with Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was lauded in the Baltimore Sun for "..superb technical control, ... seamless blend, and exceptional wealth of character in their phrasing".
