WESTERLY — Project Fusion, a musical ensemble formed in 2010 by graduates of the Eastman School of Music, will perform Sunday, April 7, at 4 p.m. at Westerly's Christ Church. Presented by the Christ Church Arts Commission, the concert is free of admission.
Project Fusion captured the gold medal at the 40th Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and first prize at the Music Teachers National Association Chamber Music Competition, and was the first saxophone quartet to win the grand prize, as well as the Audience Choice Award, at the sixth Plowman International Chamber Music Competition.
Made up of "passionate teachers," Project Fusion is dedicated to public arts outreach and has presented convocations, clinics and workshops in numerous schools, as well as recitals, residencies, and master classes at colleges and universities throughout the Midwest and the East Coast. The ensemble recently appeared at the Kingston Chamber Music Festival and Chamber Music in Yellow Springs and performed at the University of New Orleans in October 2018.
