The Apollo Saxophone Quartet will be performing in an exciting collaborative project with the Artvark Saxophone Quartet in several concerts between the 24th - 26th May 2018 in the Netherlands! For more info on these events, click here [link to events when that's live]
The two quartets met in South Africa whilst touring together and there was an instant connection, both musically and personally. Both groups are musically open-minded and all eight musicians are composers as well as saxophonists.
In January 2018, the Artvark met the Apollo for three days of intense rehearsing, each player bringing a new octet, before launching this collaboration in May in Holland.
UK dates and a recording will follow in 2018/2019...
