Em (pronounced like the letter M) Saxophone Quartet is made up of four versatile and experienced saxophonists who have played a wide variety of gigs across Singapore—from classical wind symphonies and traditional jazz big bands to contemporary music and even Thai pop. Coming together to showcase the infinite timbres and broad spectrum of the saxophone family, Em Saxophone Quartet brings their unique sensibilities to the rarely heard quartet format. Their diverse repertoire has something for everyone and includes jazz, musicals, film scores, tangos, and also cartoon theme music. Pieces include Astor Piazzolla’s hauntingly beautiful Oblivion as well as the theme song from the movie Il Postino arranged for the saxophone quartet.
Em Saxophone Quartet consists of saxophonists Teo Boon Chye, Joshua Kaleb Kong, Udom Kiattivikrai and Edmund Wuu.
