Declared “an ensemble to watch for years to come” by the American Record Guide, the award-winning h2 Quartet has been wowing audiences since 2002. A dynamic and innovative chamber ensemble, h2 constantly seeks to defy perceptions and expectations of the saxophone. h2 has performed throughout the United States, and has performed in Europe, the UK and in Asia. The group is also in demand for appearances and residencies at summer music festivals both at home and abroad, including the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and the Cortona Sessions for New Music in Italy. The ensemble has released five critically-acclaimed recordings: Generations, Times & Spaces, Groove Machine, Hard Line, and Enrapture. Each of these albums introduces audiences to a different side of the saxophone, with the latter four comfortably bridging the gap between the popular and avant-garde sides of American music. The h2 quartet has won prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition (First Prize, Gold Medals) and the North American Saxophone Alliance Saxophone Quartet Competition (first prize), among others. The group was also a recipient of an Aaron Copland Fund Recording Grant in 2010 for their album Times & Spaces.
