University of Iowa Saxophone Quartet to perform at Dordt College

February 18, 2013

The University of Iowa Saxophone Quartet will perform a free concert on Friday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium on the campus of Dordt College.

The quartet, featuring UI alumni and graduate students, will perform a repertoire that includes Fugue in G Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns, and Three Preludes by George Gershwin.

The newly formed ensemble is led by UI’s Saxophone Instructor Kenneth Tse who has been called “a brilliant saxophonist” and “worthy of any stage in the world” by his former teacher, world-renowned saxophonist and pedagogue, Eugene Rosseau. After his Carnegie Hall debut in 1996 he was hailed “a young virtuoso” by the New York Times. The Saxophone Journal said, “The name of Kenneth Tse has become synonymous with excellence of the first order when it comes to playing the saxophone.” Learn more about Tse and hear music clips at

The quartet will also spend a portion of the afternoon working with Dordt College saxophone soloists and ensembles.
