Biography


The Epsilon Saxophone Quartet consists of undergraduate students from Bowling Green State University under the instruction of Professor John Sampen. Formed in 2016, Epsilon went on to compete and win first place in the 2017 Douglas Wayland Chamber Music Competition. They are currently coached by DMA saxophone performance candidate Christopher Murphy. In 2017, Epsilon commissioned their first piece, entitled “Haumea”, from BGSU MM composition student Adam Kennaugh. In the spring of 2017, they toured Michigan and Northern Ohio performing at various schools and other venues. The Epsilon Quartet has performed at the Toledo Museum of Art, the Wildwood Manor House, live on WGTE 91 FM Toledo Public Radio, and worked with notable saxophone professors such as Jeffrey Heisler of Oakland University, Frederick L. Hemke of Northwestern University, Gail Levinsky of Susquehanna University, Sean Hurlburt, and, most recently, Jan Berry Baker of Georgia State University.
