What to Expect
We provide classical and romantic music for weddings, religious services or ceremonies, and for business parties, or for private concerts. We typical provide an hour to an hour and a half set of music for each performance. Think Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven but also Gershwin and American classics.
The Zēlos Quartet is dedicated to performing a wide array of repertoire ranging from underrepresented contemporary works to transcriptions from the baroque, classical, and romantic eras. Committed to performing on saxophones that fit the acoustical specifications of its inventor Adolphe Sax, the Zēlos Quartet looks to connect with a variety of audiences to show the wide range of sounds and colors of the saxophone.
Zēlos recently toured Seattle, Washington where they performed for 1,200 people and played a live radio broadcast for King FM 98.1. Zēlos has participated in summer music festivals such as Festival South (Hattiesburg, MS) and the National Music Festival (Chestertown, MD), where they connected with local audiences through public performances in retirement homes, farmers markets, and house concerts. They have also been extensively coached by the critically acclaimed Mana Quartet and participated in masterclasses by the award winning Verona String Quartet and Amethyst Quartet.
Based in San Jose, the quartet performs extensively around the San Francisco Bay Area. Zēlos regularly performs for First Friday, Groupmuse, Art Exhibits, and Open Mics. They were also the only student led ensemble to be invited to play in the 2017 San Jose State University Kaleidoscope concert.
Recent awards of the Zēlos Quartet include 1st place in the 2018 Frances Walton Competition, advancing the Nationals Finals of the 2018 MTNA Chamber Music competition and winning SJSU’s Concerto Competition and Music Study Club Competition.
