Rova Sax Quartet News: Upcoming in 2018

     Hey! Rova’s 40th anniversary: February 4, 2018.   Still dealing; still motivated by the art and the process of discovery.

 January 27: “Rova PLUS ONE” takes place at The Lab in San Francisco. That’s Rova plus Dohee Lee, then Rova plus Wobbly, and in set 2 Rova plus ACVilla’s film projections on three screens that Rova will react with. More details on this show are located here.

 In March, after local warm-up concerts, Rova heads for the Southeast USA for six concerts highlighted by an extended appearance at the incredible  2018 BIG EARS FESTIVAL. The quartet presents its special Sound in Space music at the Knoxville Art Museum, followed by the 14th performance since 2003 of Electric Ascension.  A special cast of musicians to be announced soon by Big Ears. More on EA can be found here. Concerts by the quartet also occur in Orlando, Tuscaloosa, Atlanta, and Athens, GA.

Just before that tour we hope to have the new Rova Sax Quartet CD called In Transverse Time, releasing on the VICTO label. The Canadaian label released three essential Rova CDs between 1995 and 2002. This one marks Rova’s 40th year making music, as well as Rova’s return to the Victo-sponsored 2018 Musique Actuelle festival on May 18 (in Victoriaville, Quebec).  This will be Rova’s fifth appearance at the festival, but the first in many years.

 Looking forward to all the activities with Rova as well as a European tour in October 2018 and other potential USA and South American appearances in the second-half of this year. For booking queries, contact Ochs or Riccarda Kato at Kato Bookbird
