Bio: Uday Singh, originally from San Jose, California, is in the fourth year of his saxophone performance degree under Dr. Chien-Kwan Lin at the Eastman School of Music. Uday has been a member of a variety of ensembles during his time at Eastman, including the Eastman Wind Ensemble, Wind Orchestra, Jazz Lab Band, and Saxophone Project. Uday is also dedicated to sharing music with new audiences and has frequently performed in local venues such as schools, libraries, and hospitals across the country. Uday is the recent first prize winner of the 2019 Empire State Collegiate Solo Competition, in addition to being a featured soloist with the Saratoga High School Symphony Orchestra. He has had the honor of studying with SSG Douglas O'Connor, Vincent David, Dr. John Sampen, Dr. Nathan Nabb, and Dr. Frederick L. Hemke.
Ensemble Bio: Since 2015, the Aruna and Scio quartets have been actively performing and competing across the United States and in Asia. With first prize awards in competitions such as the Music Teacher’s National Association Chamber Music Competition and the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, both quartets have worked to establish themselves as leading groups of the next generation of saxophone quartets. Both groups also perform frequently as featured ensembles at conferences and in concert series, as can be seen in Aruna’s recent performance in Bangkok for the Asia Pacific Saxophone Academy and Scio’s performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.. Aruna and Scio have had the opportunity to study together at the Frederick L. Hemke Saxophone Institute in Maine for a number of years and are coached by Professor David Dees and Dr. Chien-Kwan Lin, respectively.
