East End Quartet Wins 30th Annual Competition

East End Quartet

On Sunday April 26 the East End (Saxophone) Quartet took first place in the 30th Annual Competition for Emerging Professional Ensembles. Second place was awarded to the North Coast Winds. Both groups performed beautifully leaving judges Peter Landgren, Dean at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Conor Nelson Bowling Green State University (and a former Competition winner with the Intrada Winds in 2006); and Tim McAllister, University of Michigan with a very difficult decision.
