Saxophonist and conductor Andrew R. Steinberg has been recognized for his “beautiful tone” as well as his “astute and refined leadership” throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. As a concertizing soloist and the Music Director of the Megalopolis Saxophone Orchestra, Dr. Steinberg has sought to perform needlessly neglected works from the repertoire alongside music by today’s composers. An advocate of music that challenges popular conceptions of the saxophone, his performances focus on works that highlight the “Sound-of-Sax” in ways never heard before, particularly in terms of timbre and aesthetic approach.

Andrew R. Steinberg serves as the Director of Wind Studies at San Diego School of the Creative and Performing Arts, Artist-Faculty at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts, and is Founder and Music Director of the Megalopolis Saxophone Orchestra.
