The New Thread Saxophone Quartet will present “Saxophone Blowout,” an interactive children’s concert. The concert will include a workshop where children can make their own instruments to take home.

“This will be a special concert by a young creative group of musicians, and children will love the bonus of creating their own instruments and music as well,” said Dorothy Kaplan Roffman, director of the Thurnauer Music School.

The New Thread Saxophone Quartet is committed to the creation and performance of saxophone quartet repertoire from New York’s burgeoning new music scene and beyond. This group of elite musicians shares the goal of commissioning, and working closely with composers, to develop impactful new works for the saxophone.  The quartet has toured in the US and abroad, performing at the 2012 NAVY Band Symposium in Fairfax, Virginia; NASA Biennial Conferences at Illinois and Arizona State Universities, New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall and internationally at the World Saxophone Congress in St. Andrews, Scotland. Based in New York City, New Thread has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Dance Theatre of Harlem, Tenri Cultural Institute, and the Bang on a Can Summer Festival Benefit, among other venues.
