The Kenari Quartet is comprised of saxophonists Bob Eason, Kyle Baldwin, Corey Dundee, and Steven Banks. Formed in 2012 at Indiana University, the quartet’s name is derived from the Malay word “kenari,” which may be translated as “songbird.” Expanding on the age-old idea that birds communicate through song, the Kenari Quartet seeks to exemplify this concept through their performances. Free and open to the public.
Applauded for their “flat-out amazing” performances and “stunning virtuosity” (Cleveland Classical), the highly acclaimed Kenari Quartet delivers inspiring performances that transform the perception of the saxophone. The quartet aims to highlight the instrument’s remarkable versatility by presenting meticulously crafted repertoire from all periods of classical and contemporary music. Free and open to the public.
