Global Quartet China Tour a Success

Under the auspices of a U.S. State Department Cultural Arts Grant the Global Quartet had a fantastic tour of China. Concerts in Beijing, Tianjin, and Wuhan were very well attended with the Wuhan concert being sold out. Teaching residencies at the Contemporary Music Academy in Beijing, the Tianjin Conservatory of Music, and the Wuhan Conservatory proved to be very productive with talented and motivated students. The quartet also performed and worked with saxophone teachers from throughout China at the Chinese Saxophone Association Conference in Beijing. The groundwork has been layed for future educational exchanges and professional performances. Thanks also to the University of Northern Colorado, the University of Montana, and Metropolitan State University in Denver for their support.
