The Barkada Quartet, 2012 Fischoff Competition Grand Prize Winner, performed across Italy at the 2013 Emilia Romagna Festival this past summer. As the representative of the Fischoff Grand Prize Winner’s Tour, the quartet performed and shared their story with standing room only crowds.
The Barkada Quartet formed as a student chamber ensemble at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in 2011, where they all studied under Otis Murphy. The group is comprised of Christopher Elchico (soprano sax), Marti Comas (alto sax), Steven Lawhorn (tenor sax), and Justin Polyblank (baritone sax).
