The four classically-trained saxophonists met as graduate students at the The Hartt School in West Hartford, Connecticut in 2011. Shortly after forming, the quartet received the Grand Prize in the 2014 International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition in Boston, Massachusetts, becoming the first saxophone quartet to receive this honor.
