A high-energy ensemble, the Proteus Saxophone Quartet was originally formed in Paris in 2011. The members are united through their combined curiosity and love for exploring chamber music specifically written for the saxophone quartet. With a strong presence across Canada, they strive to share their music with audiences and communities through performances, masterclasses and workshops with students and the public.
Tommy Davis currently lives in Montreal, where he is active in the improvised
music scene, as well as working with many different ensembles and a growing teaching studio. Holly DeCaigny divides her time between Edmonton, Alberta, where she will be pursuing a DMA in saxophone performance, and Calgary, where she is an active freelance musician and teacher. Mark Michalak lives in Calgary, Alberta. He teaches a diverse studio of students from beginners to University level, as well as being an active music teacher in the school boards as a clinician and a substitute teacher. Michael Morimoto lives in Vancouver, BC, where he has a successful career as a music instrument repair technician and freelance musician.
Their repertoire ranges from the familiar Bach and Piazzolla to new music written especially for the ensemble by Canadian composers, and lots more in between.
