Proposal Duration: 12
Bio:

The Barkada-Kenari Saxophone Octet is the collaborative project of two award-winning saxophone quartets—both of which were founded in Bloomington, Indiana. Between them, the Barkada and Kenari saxophone quartets have participated in nearly a dozen of the most prestigious domestic and international chamber music competitions, recently receiving top prizes in the J.C. Arriaga, Coleman, Fischoff, and innagural M-Prize competitions. Comprised of current and former students of Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, the members of each quartet played pivotal roles in one another’s development during their time as students of Dr. Otis Murphy. 

This mutually supportive relationship has carried through as both groups continue to grow as budding young professional chamber ensembles. Each has gone on to give performances and master classes both at home and abroad, and collaborative relationships have been the cornerstone of Barkada and Kenari’s efforts to share the collegial qualities of chamber music with others.
