CAG’s Artist of the Month…get to know more about
the Donald Sinta Quartet

The Donald Sinta Quartet was the 2013 First Prize Winner of the CAG Competition. Founded and based in Michigan, the ensemble was named for its mentor, legendary University of Michigan Saxophone Professor Donald Sinta. The group’s members are Dan Graser, soprano saxophone; Zach Stern, alto saxophone; Joe Girard, tenor saxophone; and Danny Hawthorne-Foss, baritone saxophone.

This month sees the DSQ perform in a variety of settings. Their March 12 performance at the Brooklyn Public Library will feature two world premieres: Whim by Kyle Blaha (commissioned by CAG) and Ex Machina by Marc Mellits. Following a performance at Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess Concerts on March 15 (with live sumulcast on WFMT radio), the DSQ will head to Naperville, Illinois for two concerts with the DuPage Symphony Orchestra on March 18 and 19. The group will be featured in William Bolcom’s Concerto Grosso for Saxophone Quartet, led by Music Director Barbara Schubert, and then the DSQ will sit in with the orchestra to perform two Gershwin classics: An American in Paris and Rhapsody in Blue (and the solo pianist for the Rhapsody is none other than fellow CAG artist Fei-Fei Dong, making it a CAG extravaganza!)
