They will perform exciting worksfor saxophone quartet by local composers Allen Brings, Richard Brooks, Larry Dresner, Jay Anthony Gach, Joe Landi, Sunny Knable, and Edward Smaldone. Suggested donation is $20. All proceeds go to the church’s music fund.

The Cobalt Quartet comprises four of the finest saxophonists from the New York metropolitan area – Raymond Kelly, Anthony Izzo; Ryan Mantell, and Josh Lang – and is particularly interested in presenting modern pieces by living composers alongside the very best classics of the repertoire as well as lesser-known contemporary works, both original and transcribed. Since it's founding in the summer of 2017, the ensemble has presented highly varied and exciting programs including a recent concert of all new music as part of a series with AWCANYC and Concrete Timbre. Upcoming performances include collaborations with the MSO, Andrew Koss, and LICA.
