The Encore Saxophone Quartet is among Los Angeles' premier ensembles. It is regularly featured on LACMA's prestigious Sundays Live! series. Formed by internationally renowned saxophonist and UCLA and USC Professor of Saxophone Douglas Masek in 1984, the Quartet's extensive repertoire spans original compositions and arrangements that bridge styles from the Classical to Modern Jazz. Individually, all of the members are noted soloists and chamber music artists who perform with all of the leading Los Angeles orchestras including the LA Phil. They can be heard on the soundtracks of numerous movies and TV shows.
The Encore Saxophone Quartet will perform an outreach concert for the students of First Lutheran School later in the afternoon.
