Created in 2010 as the country’s first “conductor-less” saxophone ensemble, the Eastman Saxophone Project (ESP) consists of students from the saxophone studio at the Eastman School of Music.  The ensemble also performs entire programs from memory, dramatically enhancing the level of interaction with its audiences.

At the invitation of Selmer (Paris), ESP made its New York debut at Steinway Hall in 2011.  The ensemble has also performed at the West Point Military Academy as part of the North American Saxophone Alliance Regional Conference, as well as at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for the 2014 NASA biennial conference.

ESP performs around ten concerts a year, including two full recitals per season in Rochester.
