Bio: Dr. Sarah Roberts is Assistant Professor of Saxophone and Jazz Studies at The University of Texas at Tyler. In February 2017, Dr. Roberts was the featured soloist with the Mineola Middle School Band for their TMEA Honor Band Performance where she premiered, The Pursuit by Micah Bell, a work specifically commissioned for the event. In 2012, she was the guest artist with the Southeastern Oklahoma State University‚Äôs jazz band for their annual jazz festival; and in 2014 she was the Artist-in-Residence with the Southeast Iowa Symphony. Dr. Roberts completed her doctorate of musical arts degree in saxophon performance from the University of NOrth Texas in August 2015. She also holds dual master of music degrees in saxophone performance and jazz studies from the University of North Texas and dual undergraduate degrees in saxophone performance and jazz studies from the University of Michigan.
Ensemble Bio:

Formed in 2017, the Essimar Trio's members, an unlikely mix-match of instruments, are twin sisters, Rachel Roberts (flute) and Sarah Roberts (saxophone) and Sarah's husband, Micah Bell (trumpet). The group orginally spawned from conversations around the dinner table regarding performing one new composition for a recital. The response after their first performance in February 2017, was astounding, and thus spawned more compositions for another recital in July 2017. Micah's creative compositions utilize each member of the ensemble in specific ways to create as many colors and timbres from the ensemble as possible.
