Forest Music: Mana Saxophone Quartet

Description: A special performance by the Mana Saxophone Quartet in the forest at Adkins Arboretum

Adkins Arboretum joins with the National Music Festival in presenting a unique improvisatory performance in the Arboretum forest by Mana Saxophone Quartet. Positioning themselves in various places in the forest, within hearing distance though not necessarily within sight of one another, these innovative musicians will respond to each other's playing in a musical conversation winding through the trees. Following this event, they will give a brief concert in the Visitor's Center.

Known for its distinctive energy and superb musicianship, Mana Quartet returns to the NMF for its third year as Resident Chamber Ensemble. The first saxophone quartet to win the prestigious Coleman International Chamber Ensemble Competition, the quartet has spearheaded the growing acceptance of the saxophone in classical music.
