named after the Greek god of the sea, is mutable and versatile, performing classical transcriptions, traditional quartets, minimalist works, jazz-influenced pieces and oeuvres that explore new techniques and electronics. They have performed at the NASA Biennial and Regional Conferences, Strata New Music Festival, World Saxophone Congress, Proms Summer Music Series (Saskatoon) and the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. Proteus has premiered works by Karol Beffa, Justin Boechler, John Celona, Robert Lemay, Denis Leviallant, and Alex Loewen. They have collaborated in concerts with soloists François Rossé, pianist (France), Mark DeJong, jazz saxophonist (Calgary) and the Jean-Michel Goury and Friends International Saxophone Ensemble. Comfortable on all saxophones, the ensemble often switches roles and instrumentation in concerts, creating an ever changing dynamic within the ensemble and for the audience. Integrating movement, spatialisation, electronics and improvisation into their concerts, Proteus creates performance spectacles, blurring the boundaries of concert music and theatre.
