University To Host Horizon Saxophone Quartet

Air Force BandHorizon Saxophone Quartet, a component of the United States Air Force Band of the West, will present a concert at Georgia Southern University’s Carol A. Carter Recital Hall on Wednesday, Jan. 28, at 7:30 p.m. This family-friendly performance is free, open to the public and hosted by the University’s Southern Saxophones ensemble.

Horizon Saxophone Quartet brings the highest standards of musical excellence to its audiences. Fashioned after a traditional concert band saxophone section and comprised of four world-class instrumentalists, the Horizon Saxophone Quartet promotes the concept of using chamber ensembles in musical support of Air Force recruiting and retention, troop morale and community relations missions.

The inherent versatility of Horizon enables it to perform a wide variety of music, from Bach to Vivaldi, to contemporary jazz, popular music, marches and patriotic favorites. Capitalizing on this versatility, Horizon provides entertainment at events and venues to include official military ceremonies and functions, educational outreach at elementary and junior high schools, recruiting concerts at high schools and college campuses and community relations concerts.

As part of the Air Education and Training Command at Joint Base San Antonio Lackland, Texas, Horizon is proud to represent the men and women of the United States Air Force. Combining pride in the Air Force story with their love of music and education, Horizon brings a uniquely motivating experience to military and civilian audiences throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
