OUTSIDE: 4 TO 6PM: The Erik Satie Quartet
is a wind group whose focus of repertoire starts with Erik Satie, his times, and beyond. The four lithe and muscular voices present music that is unique and strange for the uninitiated, yet with warmth and humanity at its core.
Repertoire is drawn from the works of Milhaud, Auric, Poulenc, Stravinsky, Britten, Durey, Sibelius
, and of course the Velvet Gentleman
himself. Featuring arrangements by leader and trombonist Ron Hay
, the group includes Alex Hamlin
(bari sax/clarinet), Max Seigel
(bass trombone), Ben Holmes
