New Century Saxophone Quartet


Chris Hemingway - alto saxophone

Christopher HemingwayBorn in Florence, SC and now living in Pittsburgh, PA, Chris’ natural fluency in both classical and jazz styles separates him from most chamber musicians. Now in his fifth season with the New Century Saxophone Quartet, his performing career is equally complemented with an active freelance jazz career in Pittsburgh. He performs regularly with Azucar Pittsburgh's Premier salsa band, the Roger Humphries Big Band, the Al Dowe Quintet, and with New York City jazz trumpeter Sean Jones, who has just recently released his first solo recording. As a sophomore undergraduate at Duquesne University, Chris won the School of Music's prestigious concerto competition. At the young age of 21, he was also a featured soloist with the Pittsburgh Symphony. Chris has studied with James Houlik at the North Carolina School of the Arts and at Duquesne University.
