The Theatre Royal presents

Xyris Quartet

Sat 6 Apr 2024 7:00 pm
Ian Potter Recital Hall at The Hedberg

Xyris Quartet’s performances rely solely on the saxophone to interpret classical standards and experimental contemporary composition.

Its members – Benjamin Price (soprano saxophone), Jabra Latham (alto saxophone), Thomas McKay (tenor saxophone), and Eva Nilssen (baritone saxophone) – play exclusively on vintage saxophones that preserve the acoustic properties intended by the instrument’s inventor, Adolphe Sax.

Xyris Quartet has recorded and performed for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and appeared as soloists with the Hobart Chamber Orchestra.

For Xyris Quartet’s Theatre Royal season, its players will tackle the timeless works of classical masters, contemporary compositions and debut brand new music that bridges centuries of musical tradition.

Accessibility - Please note - you can choose your preferred seat for these performances. You have the option of flat-floor seating with direct entry (no stairs involved) or tiered seating (stairs involved). The sound is equally good throughout the venue but this option is being offered to ensure all our audience members are comfortable accessing different parts of the venue.
