The award-winning Encore Saxophone Quartet is among Los Angeles’ premier performing ensembles. Formed in 1984 by internationally renowned saxophonist Douglas Masek, the Quartet’s extensive repertoire spans original compositions and arrangements that bridge styles from the Classical to Modern Jazz.
The Quartet’s unique blending of innovative and diverse programming, along with informational narrative, transports its listeners on a musical journey that exhibits the many colorful possibilities encompassing the sound spectrum of the saxophone in a quartet setting.
Individually, the members of the Quartet are distinguished soloists and chamber music artists who perform nationally and internationally. In addition to performing, they are dedicated educators that serve on the faculties of UCLA, Vanguard University, La Sierra University, and California State University at Fullerton, where they teach private lessons, coach chamber music, and mentor the next generation of emerging musical artists.
