Sinta Quartet

The Sinta Quartet has won the Gold Medal at the ’18 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, First Prize at the ’17 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition, the Alice Coleman Grand Prize at the ’13 Coleman Chamber Music Competition and First Prize at the ’12 North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition. 

The Quartet earns praise from audiences and critics alike for virtuosic performances and distinctive repertoire. 

In addition, they play entirely from memory, strengthening an already palpable connection with its audiences. 

It is named for its mentor, University of Michigan Saxophone professor, Donald Sinta.


“…a tight-knit ensemble exploding with power and virtuosity and an un-concealable ambition to connect with its newly found listeners” – Boston Musical Intelligencer
