Biography

The New Specs Quartet is a saxophone quartet at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon, USA. This group formed in 2012. Since then, there have been a couple personnel changes. Daniel Chavez, who originally played tenor, came back to the quartet to fill the role as the baritone player. Yu Yang, who started on alto, now plays tenor saxophone. The new addition to the group is Chen Xi, who plays alto. Hope Erickson, soprano saxophone, is the only member who has played the same instrument since 2012.
New Specs Quartet has performed at various regional music conferences and student recitals. They have participated in master classes with Aurelia Saxophone Quartet and Oasis Saxophone Quartet. The members also perform with the Siskiyou Saxophone Orchestra.
