The Olias Saxophone Quartet is based in Manchester, UK, and met at the RNCM in September 2021. They have had the opportunity to partake in many exciting concerts, including ‘Queering the Whitworth’ project with Dylan Edge in March 2022 and various RNCM events.

 

With members from across the country, the quartet have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating and fusing their different musical tastes, backgrounds, influences and enjoyments. Collectively they share a passion for all types of saxophone quartet repertoire and music, most of which many audiences rarely get the chance to experience.

 

Through studying at the RNCM the quartet have the guidance of Rob Buckland, Andy Scott and Carl Raven, who form 3/4 of one of the world’s most renowned saxophone quartets, the Apollo Saxophone Quartet. They are excited for what the future holds and for upcoming opportunities, including the performance of a world premiere with the RNCM’s Brand New Orchestra.
