Four Horsemen Quartet
"The Four Horsemen Tuba/Euphonium Quartet came together to perform fresh, enlivened interpretations of standard quartet repertoire, as well to introduce audiences to exciting original music and new transcriptions. All four of us began our journey in a traditional academic setting. After graduating from the University of Kentucky, we took off down our individual paths of life-- teaching, performing, composing, traveling, studying outside of music, adopting pets, having quarter-life crises, etc. Yet we continued to share a craving that was not so easily satisfied: the desire to perform chamber music at the highest possible level while enjoying the camaraderie of our fellow musicians and audience members.
"The Four Horsemen originated as a student ensemble; its members were comprised of undergraduate and graduate musicians under the tutelage of Dr. Skip Gray. Through many reincarnations, they performed frequently throughout Central Kentucky and in chamber music competitions."
