The Viva Saxophone Quartet plays everything from Bach to Queen! The mix of easy listening swing, ragtime and popular classics is perfect for background music or events. Saxophone quartets are a very versatile ensemble, capable of sounding almost organ-like and beautifully classical one moment and uproariously jazzy the next.
