Founded in 2015, Fuego Quartet is an award-winning chamber group devoted to the performance of both standard and contemporary works written for the saxophone. Most recently, they were awarded the Gold Medal of the 2017 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, first place in brass, winds and percussion at the Plowman Chamber Music Competition, and second place in the 2017 National MTNA Chamber Music Competition. They have also been prize winners in the 198th Army Band College Chamber Competition and the Honors Chamber Music Competition at the Eastman School of Music. As the 2016 recipients of the John Celentano Award for Chamber Music Excellence, Fuego has been featured in a variety of settings from standard concert hall venues to community outreach concerts. They have been featured artists at the Strong National Museum of Play, George Eastman Museum, Dorris Carlson Reading Garden, Phillis Wheatley Library, Susan B.
