The Resurgam Quartet formed in 2015 at the Hartt School in Hartford, CT. Its current members are Harry Kliewe (soprano saxophone), Colette Hall (alto saxophone), Sean Tanguay (tenor saxophone), and Michael Raposo (baritone saxophone).
Dedicated to expanding the saxophone quartet body of work, Resurgams's latest commission, I Could Hold This, I Could Not, premiered in early March, 2020 at the North American Saxophone Alliance's Biennial Conference. The Quartet performed their previous commission, Breaking Point, as soloists with the Tri-County Symphonic Band in Marion, MA. Both pieces will be available on their first commercial recording titled Breaking Point which will be released in March 2022.
Resurgam has presented concerts of new works at both the Queens New Music Festival and the Hartford New Music Festival, and will continue to collaborate with visionary composers to create exciting saxophone quartet repertoire.
The Quartet advanced to the semi-final round at the prestigious international Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in both 2016 and 2017 and won the 2016 Paranov Concerto Competition at the Hartt School where they performed William Bolcom’s Concerto Grosso.
Education is an important part of Resurgam's mission. The Quartet has presented masterclasses, educational concerts and performances in New York City, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Indiana.
The Resurgam Quartet is dedicated to engaging audiences in exciting saxophone quartet repertoire.
