Over 100 Years of Women and the Saxophone

As part of International Women's day the Laefer Quartet are involved with a project at the Royal College of Music entitled Women in Music. Our Soprano player, Amy Green, developed the project 100 Years of Women and the Saxophone with composer/saxophonist Charlotte Harding for the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg.

The project celebrates the often overlooked role women have played in the development of our fantastic instrument; including the first ever recording of a saxophone, the commissioning of key works in the repertoire, and the all female dance bands of the swing era!

We will be performing an arrangement Charlotte Harding did for us of Cosmopolitan American March by Helen-May Butler in the 6:00pm evening concert, come along to find out more!
