Cul de Sax Saxophone Quartet features the major members of the saxophone family – soprano, alto, tenor and baritone – played with style by professional musicians who have been performing together for 20 years (Paul Aliapoulios, Jim Huebener, Chris Gutscher, and Susan Nourse). The group has been featured in numerous concerts and resorts in Maine as well being invited to play at special events such as receptions at the Governor’s Mansion, the U.S. Navy Saxophone Symposium in Washington, D.C. and the arrival of the “Tall Ships” in Boston.
The quartet’s performance will be a Musical Tribute to the Immigrants who brought us America’s Greatest Music. They will be playing tunes written by many of America’s well-known immigrants: Irving Berlin,,Neil Diamond, Anton Dvorak, Herbert & Rambert, Bela Bartok, Paul Hindemith, Darius Milhaud, Piazzola, Vernon Duke, Jule Styne, Kurt Weill, the Beatles, George & Ira Gershwin, (and more) As an added bonus, UUCB’s own Paul Schaffner will perform a Persian Raga on the hammered dulcimer, and Paul Aliapoulios will honor our original Americans with an authentic Penobscot tune on the Native American flute.
