Asylum Quartet Opens Reeves-Reed Summer Concert Series June 25

June 18, 2014 at 8:46 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Asylum Quartet, an awarding-winning classical chamber ensemble made up of four saxophonists, will open this year’s Sounds of A Summer Night, concert-in-the-garden series at Reeves-Reed Arboretum, on June 25.

The Asylum Quartet consists of Joseph Abad (soprano saxophone), Tony Speranza (alto saxophone), Max Schwimmer (tenor saxophone), and Andrew Barnhart (baritone saxophone).  All avid chamber musicians, the members of the quartet met as graduate students a The Hartt School in West Hartford, CT.
The Asylum Quartet plays everything from lush classical works, minimalism, and modernism to indie rock, world music, and kelzmer.  Influenced by Spanish, Ethiopian, Indian traditions, as well as commission pieces by Iranian and Turkish composers, the quartet will offer a program of music launching the international theme of this year’s concert series at the Arboretum.

The group recently garnered the distinction of being the first saxophone quartet to receive top honors at the International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition, winning the Grand Prize and the Gold Medal.  

All Sounds of A Summer Night concerts are on Wednesday evenings, and begin with the Arboretum grounds opening up at 6 p.m. for concertgoers to picnic.  The performances are from 7 - 8 p.m.  All attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.  Admission is free to Reeves-Reed Arboretum members, courtesy to underwriting support from Investors Bank.  Otherwise, there is a $10 donation at the door for non-members; students are $5 with a valid ID.

Sounds of A Summer Night is sponsored, in part, by Nick & Tracy McKee, and the Grand Summit Hotel.  Reeves-Reed Arboretum is located at 165 Hobart Avenue and, for more information, visit reevesreedarboretum.org.
