~ Weddings ~ Receptions ~ Parties ~ Special Events ~

The Northstar Saxophone Quartet exemplifies how beautiful, versatile, and enjoyable the saxophone can be. Northstar's unique and eclectic musical repertoire provides your event the dignity and beauty of classical music alongside a vivacious and fun variety of jazz, popular, ragtime, folk, and seasonal tunes. The instruments of the saxophone family come in many sizes, and Northstar Quartet combines them into a rich sonic experience that blends the warmth and finesse of a string quartet with the rich sound and diverse styles available to wind instruments. This amazing flexibility makes them an ideal musical choice for both formal and causal of events of every type. In addition to performing for receptions and parties, Northstar Quartet also presents formal concert programs and educational outreach concerts and clinics.
