Donald Sinta Quartet at Rieth Recital Hall, Goshen College

The Donald Sinta Quartet, Gold Medal winners at the Fischoff Competition, has earned praise from audiences and critics alike for its virtuosic performances, compelling recordings and distinctive repertoire. Hailed as “…a tight-knit ensemble exploding with power and virtuosity and an un- concealable ambition to connect with its newly found listeners” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), the DSQ performs entirely from memory, which strengthens an already palpable connection with its audiences.

Named for its mentor, legendary University of Michigan Saxophone Professor Donald Sinta, the quartet’s competition successes include, 1st prize in the Concert Artists Guild Competition, 1st Prize at the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition, the Grand Prize and 1st Place of the Coleman Chamber Competition, and 1st Prize in the North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition.
