UI Grad Sax Quartet Advances to Finals in Fischoff
The Versa Quartet is one of 12 ensembles in the Senior Winds division selected to move on in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Association. This year there were 130 ensembles that applied, representing 16 nationalities. Due to the Covid-19 virus, the semifinalists will not be traveling to compete in South Bend in May. The competition will be judged remotely by world-class jurors.
The Versa Quartet recently won first prize in the North American Saxophone Alliance quartet competition. Members Scott Augustine, Michael Chapa, Wilson Poffenberger, and Jack Thorpe are students of Professor Debra Richtmeyer.
