That’s A Plenty!

It is the pleasure of the RCSQ to share with you the many moods of music, expressed through the medium of Adolphe Sax�s invention–the saxophone. Each member of the quartet, for his own unique reasons, was drawn to this versatile wind instrument, and together they�ve enjoyed performing these often-requested tunes for live audiences everywhere.  This packed programme of ragtime, classics and jazz can surely be called

The Autumn Leaves

 

Autumn is a time of vibrant colours.  Vibrant too are the colours of Jazz.  For the first time on CD, Ernie Kalwa and his Quartet make their debut with this popular collection of jazz standards.  Having played professionally throughout Ontario for over fifteen years, they’ve assembled some of their favourite requests into an enjoyable mix of Swing, Latin, and a ballad thrown in for good measure.  Timeless classics create the perfect programme and a sparkling atmosphere for any occasion.

The Royal City Saxophone Quartet - 2002

“One of the best saxophone quartets in Canada.”–Paul Brodie, Order of Canada

“…World Class…” — The Canadian Press

The Royal City Saxophone Quartet (RCSQ) was formed in 1991 in Guelph, Ontario. Since then, the group has carved its own niche in the genre of Ragtime.  Their recordings Ragtime for Rent and Ticklin’ Time have enjoyed worldwide appeal and have been featured on CBC Radio, on commercial classical stations, and on National Public Radio in the USA.  Concert tours have taken the group to ragtime and jazz festivals throughout Canada and the United States including the du Maurier Downtown Jazz Festival in Toronto, the Evergreen Ragtime Bash in Colorado, the Grand International Ragtime-Jasstime Festival at Alexandria Bay, and the world’s largest Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival in Sedalia, Missouri.  In 1998, the RCSQ represented Ontario in a Canada Day performance before an audience of over 100,000 on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Due to their range of sensitivity, expression, and dynamics, assembling four different members of the saxophone family together by four compatible and enthusiastic musicians achieves a new dimension in variety and musical creativity. Their musical promenades always leave audiences with lasting musical memories.

Because of their dedication to chamber music, the RCSQ performs well at intimate settings from weddings, banquets and receptions to larger outdoor activities such as festivals, barbecues, graduations and grand openings. They have many Renaissance, Baroque and Classical transcriptions to enhance any intimate affair, and plenty of Ragtime, Jazz and Swing selections to “set the spark” for parties, celebrations and other festive occasions.
