The Caprice Saxophone Quartet was founded in 2011 to bring engaging music for saxophones to Minneapolis-St. Paul audiences. In addition to standard repertoire, Caprice is dedicated to fostering the music of our time by performing new music by emerging and established composers, holding calls for scores, and collaborating with local Minnesota composers. The quartet presents their own concert series and has appeared in venues ranging from recital halls and schools to churches, lounges, and city parks. Members of the quartet are: Ross Wolf, soprano saxophone; Katherine Bergman, alto saxophone; Kurt Hattenberger, tenor saxophone; Sarah Minette, bari saxophone.
Graydon Peterson is one of the backbones of the jazz scene in the Twin Cities. Known as a guy who excels at many styles, Graydon has played with the Twin Cities’ top jazz singers and modern jazz groups, and has toured around the United States. He’s a top-call player who up until now, has been content hanging out in the shadows. Well, Graydon grabbed the pen and paper and what emerged were weird time signatures, beautiful melodies and hard grooves. Graydon’s tunes evoke a wide variety of emotions and energies, stretching what we know as “modern jazz” to it’s limit. The Quintet is rounded out by Adam Meckler on trumpet, Joe Strachan on keyboards, Andrew Gillespie on percussion, and Adrian Suarez on drums.
