Ensemble Bio:

Singularity is a contemporary saxophone quartet dedicated to building relationships through live performance.

Praised in their May 2015 Carnegie Hall debut as “at once sensitive, nuanced, brash, and daring; all depending on the demands of the music” (David Ludwig, Curtis Institute) and for bringing “a wonderful life and spirit to my work,” (Charles Wuorinen, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer), Singularity’s performances combine precision, thoughtful interpretations, and an honest presentation of the close friendship they share.

Since forming in 2013, Singularity has developed an unending curiosity for the creation, purpose, and performance of original and arranged compositions for saxophone quartet. Their warm and artistically vulnerable presence encourages audiences to join in their exploration, establishing an inclusive environment ideal for deep listening and uninhibited imagination.

Recent Singularity appearances include performances on the Princeton Symphony Orchestra Chamber Series, at the Ethos New Music Society at SUNY Fredonia, and as guest artists and clinicians at Mercyhurst College.
