We have been awarded a commissioning grant through CMA's Classical Commissioning program! Corey Dundee, our tenor saxophonist and a wonderful composer, will be composing a new work for saxophone quartet and we will premiere the piece in 2017!
A big thanks to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music Endowment Fund!
Altius Quartet is a recipient of the CMA Classical Commissioning Grant!
We are working with composer Michael Ippolito and are excited for his new work. Ippolito serves as Assisstant Professor of Composition at Texas State University.
