Formed in 2003, the Assembly Quartet’s principle objective is to engage with audiences in public schools and communities, working with students and individuals that often have limited experience with chamber music or the music of our time. Assembly Quartet has completed week-long residencies in North Dakota, South Carolina, Michigan, and North Carolina, performing and teaching in area schools and offering evening recitals. Additionally, the group has been featured in concerto performances with the Florence Symphony Orchestra, Motor City Symphony Orchestra, Oakland Symphony Orchestra, and with the Minot Symphony Orchestra in performances of concerti by Philip Glass, Benjamin Taylor, and Bob Mintzer.
In recent years, the Assembly Quartet has been featured on the Lake City Concert Series, Francis Marion University’s Artist Series, Sybil Center’s Artist Series, Columbia Museum of Art’s French Impressionist Art/Music Collaboration, and on South Carolina public radio. They are regularly featured at the International Saxophone Symposium and meetings of the North American Saxophone Alliance and World Saxophone Congress. The Assembly Quartet is a versatile ensemble, comfortable performing a wide variety of styles from orchestral pops to virtuosic avant-garde.
