Artvark Apollo Collaboration!
Apollo met the Artvark Saxophone Quartet in South Africa when both groups were guest artists at the inaugural South African Saxophone Symposium in 2014. The idea to get together and form a larger saxophone group, fusing both ensembles different sound worlds in a jazz classical mix, has taken time to come to fruition but the two quartets are finally in rehearsals with each member writing music for the group.
Three days of rehearsal, workshopping ideas and composing taking place this week.
Thanks to the University of Salford for providing us with a great rehearsal space
