Founded in 1992, the Lenoir Saxophone Ensemble has performed jazz and chamber music for diverse audiences throughout the Southeastern United States and have traveled as far as Austria where they represented the US at the KaiserFest in Bad Ischl. One reviewer there wrote that "the ensemble crushes conventions and expands the usual sax quartet repertoire". The group has made a number of recordings, the newest entitled High Standards which pays homage to new arrangements and jazz standards by compose/arranger David Wilken. Performances of their music are regularly heard on public radio stations WNCW and WDAV and in Scotland through NPR cultural exchange programming.
