On Dec. 3, Singularity is set to perform as the third installment of the Roche Guest Artist series.
Singularity, a saxophone quartet, was formed in 2013. The group is comprised of Thomas Giles, soprano and alto saxophone, Cole Belt, alto saxophone, Scotty Phillips, tenor saxophone, and Bryan McNamar, baritone saxophone. They perform an array of original and arranged compositions. They will be performing works by Neil Anderson-Himmelspach, David Lang, Josquin des Prez, David Ludwig and Tristan Keuris.
“They build a strong relationship with the audience through compelling programming and an ease about their personal style,” Ludwig, composer, said.
The concert will include pieces by Josquin des Prez, with arrangements by Phillips, Lang, Ludwig and Keuris.
The group has performed all over the United States and throughout Europe including New World Symphony, Tallahassee Symphony, Princeton Symphony, Flagstaff Symphony, Pensacola Symphony, Taneycomo Festival and National Music Festival orchestras.
In addition to the group, the members have also pursued solo projects–they have participated and found success in multiple prestigious competitions across the United States and Europe.
“Singularity’s interpretations are vibrant, extremely musical and organic,” Neil Anderson-Himmelspach, composer, said.
This electric performance will take place at 2 p.m. in the Walker Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
