STUART - Upon taking my seat at the Lyric Theatre just prior to Friday night's concert by the Amherst Saxophone Quartet, I was reminded of a joke famous among musicians: "What do you call 10,000 saxophones at the bottom of the ocean?" Answer: "A good start." Read more »

The saxophone virtuosos, final season presentation of the Treasure Coast Concert Association, are always a delight., running the musical gamut from classical to jazz. Stephen Rosenthal, Tenor sax, serves as the Buffalo, N.Y. group's announcer and stand-up comic. Steve provides an ongoing humorous, iconoclastic commentary on the evening's music and other unrelated subjects. Read more »
