The Washington Saxophone Quartet tailors and arranges music for the saxophone in pieces that were originally written for organ, string quartet or entire orchestras, to name a few, at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church (3241 Brush Dr., Falls Church) on Nov. 17 at 4 p.m. Interested attendees can also listen to witty commentary provided by Rich Kleinfeldt, founder of WSQ and a host on WETA radio.
This program features pieces by English composers, two of which tell stories about the cities of Birmingham and London. Another is a Hoedown from a British perspective (coupled with the Copland Hoedown). The quartet will open the concert with Bach; the group’s favorite composer.
Admission to the concert is free, but a $20 donation is suggested. A wine and cheese reception follows the concert.
