Celebrated for its artistry, virtuosity, and exquisitely blended sound, the ANCIA Saxophone Quartet performs and promotes the creation of new works, in addition to more traditional repertoire. ANCIA premiered Jennifer Higdon’s Short Stories which is the title track from their most recent CD, released on Naxos. ANCIA is featured regularly on American Public Media’s "Performance Today" and on Wisconsin Public Radio’s "Live From the Chazen." The group performed Philip Glass’ Concerto for Saxophone Quartet with the Wayzata Symphony (MN) in 2012 and Concerto Grosso by William Bolcom with the Bloomington Symphony (MN) in 2011. Based in Minneapolis, MN, ANCIA is an Artist-Clinician Ensemble for the Conn-Selmer and Vandoren companies.
