The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee will present a free concert featuring saxophone quartet ~Nois on Sunday, January 28th at 2:00 p.m. ~Nois was formed in 2016 by Northwestern University graduate students Hunter Bockes, János Csontos, Jordan Lulloff, and Brandon Quarles. The quartet will present a diverse program of contemporary classical music, including works written especially for the ensemble. ~Nois will also perform works by Robert Schumann and George Gershwin.
~Nois was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2017 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the largest and one of the most prestigious chamber music competitions in the United States. They were also awarded First Prize at the 2016 Chicago Woodwind Ensemble Competition.
“I saw these four young musicians perform at an Evanston street fair last summer,” said Roger Bingaman, series Artistic Director. “Right away I knew I wanted to bring their fantastic sound to the Fine Arts Series,” he said.
The concert will be held at Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding Avenue. Admission to the concert is free of charge, although donations are gladly welcomed. A reception with the artists follows the concert, hosted by the Fine Arts Committee.
The 2017/2018 Fine Arts season is dedicated to the memory of Nancy and Gordon Johnson, the Irving Park Lutheran Church members who with Artistic Director Roger Bingaman founded the series in 1994. The final concert of the season is Ling’s Classical Strings on March 18th at 2:00 p.m. at Irving Park Lutheran Church.
