Join us for an amazing concert of works for Saxophone and Piano by master Saxophonist Robin Lacey and pianist Dan Chien
“Robin Lacey is a saxophone force to be reckoned with! A strong and passionate performer!” Dr. Paul Shewan, Roberts Wesleyan College and Guest Conductor with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra
Catskill’s adventurous Bridge Street Theatre opened its 2019 Season on January 6 with a take-no-prisoners performance by the Zelos Saxophone Quartet. Winner of the 2018 Frances Walton Competition, this vibrant and youthful ensemble, based in San Jose, CA, presented a jaw-dropping array of classic and contemporary works. Now, the theatre bookends its season with a performance by the ensemble’s only female member, the astonishing Robin Lacey (accompanied at the piano by Dan Chien) on Saturday November 30, 2019, at 7:30pm.
Robin Lacey’s “beautiful and warm sound on the tenor saxophone” has been heard in venues across the U.S as a soloist and in chamber music, (National Music Festival, MD, Festival South, MS, Beethoven Center Concert Series, CA, 41st International Navy Band Saxophone Symposium, VA, Herbst Theater, SF, North American Saxophone Alliance, OR). While finishing up her Master’s degree in music performance at San Jose State University, under the direction of Dr. Michael Hernandez, Robin has performed concertos (Villa-Lobos’ “Fantasia on tenor saxophone” and von Koch’s “Concerto for Alto Saxophone”) with several orchestras, such as the Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra (Palo Alto, CA), the SJSU Orchestra (San Jose, CA) and the Roberts Wesleyan College Orchestra (Rochester, NY).
