We have been awarded a commissioning grant through CMA's Classical Commissioning program! Corey Dundee, our tenor saxophonist and a wonderful composer, will be composing a new work for saxophone quartet and we will premiere the piece in 2017!
A big thanks to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music Endowment Fund!
Altius Quartet is a recipient of the CMA Classical Commissioning Grant!
