There is nothing more bluesy than a saxophone, nothing, that is, but five saxophones harmonising together.
Such a bluesy atmosphere will accompany some great Lebanese and Syrian cuisine at the Zaatar – Food & Arts Project in Nicosia on Thursday when the Saxophone Quintet will perform it’s From Rag Time to Jazz routine.
The quintet, created in September 2017 by saxophone professor George Krasidis, consists of students and collaborators of the Arte Music Academy in Nicosia (George Krasidis – soprano/tenor sax, Achilleas Tomasidis – alto/tenor sax, Nicholas Georgiou – alto sax, Simos Tziakouris – tenor sax, Aris Kyriakides – baritone sax).
The Arte Music Academy in Nicosia was the first music institution of tertiary education in Cyprus and the only one specialised and exclusively dedicated to music. It offers a unique musical education, covering the areas of performance, composition, music education and academic study of music.
Showcasing this dedication to music, the quintet will present an evening of jazz and ragtime music at a place where popping cultural happenings are always accompanied by good company, great food and a relaxing atmosphere.
