" . . . . the experience of listening to four saxophones playing in harmony has elicited highly favorable audience feedback.
. . . . the give and take with audience members allows for an educational component to each performance.
. . . . even the novice listener is alert to the nuances of the piece being played.
. . . . The nexus between jazz and classical music is also highlighted with the musicians both talking and demonstrating the connections between the two genres. By the conclusion of each performance, audience immersion in the music being presented is complete."

" . . . . GSQ presented a wonderfully eclectic and well paced program, ranging from the Baroque to Broadway and the Beatles.
. . . . Straus' anecdotal introductions heightened the audience's delight in the GSQ's superb performance.
. . . . a perfect musical smorgasboard for our audience of varied ages.
We look forward to having them back and soon!"

" . . . . The group, comprised of four master musicians, gave impeccable performances and highly informative presentations.
. . . . Through the use of humor and expertise, the group interacted effortlessly with the students, maintaining an excellent rapport from beginning to end. The students and staff were mesmerized throughout, and the feedback was 100% positive.
. . . . The Generations Sax Quartet is a musical gem, one which we look forward to having back for future performances. I unhesitatingly recommend the group to any school interested in presenting an enriching music educational experience to its students."
