The Wright State University Saxophone Quartet has been selected to perform at the 2007 OMEA Professional Development Conference February 8-10 in Columbus, Ohio. Over 160 CDs were submitted representing outstanding groups from all areas and levels. Groups were selected through "blind" audition. In 2006 alone the quartet won a competitive audition among several quartets across the nation to perform at the United States Navy Band International Saxophone Symposium in Fairfax, Virginia, in January 2006, and at the National Music Educators Conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah, in April 2006. Most recently, a recording of the WSU Saxophone Quartet won the members a 2006 Summer Fellowship to attend the prestigious Chamber Music Institute at Lincoln, Nebraska.
