This event is free and open to the public.
New Thread Quartet (NTQ) was formed with the mission to develop and perform impactful new music for the saxophone, and to provide high-level ensemble playing to feature today's compositional voices.
Based in New York City, NTQ has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Dance Theatre of Harlem, Tenri Cultural Institute, the Bang on a Can Summer Festival Benefit, NYsoundCircuit and the Composers Now Festival.
The quartet encourages young composers to create new works for saxophones through an open submission policy, conducting reading and feedback sessions throughout the year. NTQ has given masterclasses, residencies and performances for student saxophonists and composers at Peabody Conservatory, Bronx Community College, Aaron Copland School (Queens College) and New York University.
NTQ has received support from The Aaron Copland Fund, the Cary New Music Performance Fund, New Music USA, the FROMM Foundation and the Queens Council on the Arts. NTQ is also a presenting partner of Composers Now.
