CHRISTOPHER BRELLOCHS (saxophonist) has performed in Paris, Germany and throughout the United States from Carnegie Hall in New York City to the International Saxophone Symposium in Winchester, Virginia. Brellochs’ recordings include Quiet City (2011) which features the world premiere recording of Aaron Copland’s complete incidental music for Quiet City in its original instrumentation. Brellochs worked from the unpublished manuscript to bring this adaptation to life, which The Copland Estate and Boosey & Hawkes have embraced and published. The recording has received radio play on National Public Radio: Weekend Edition and Performance Today, and print reviews in Gramophone (Awards 2011) and Der Spiegel magazines. Other recordings include classical CD Apotheosis of the Saxophone (2008). Brellochs is Chair of the Music Program at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, New York where he conducts the Mid-Hudson Community Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble, and typically teaches Music Theory, Aural Skills, and History of Music. www.christopherbrellochs.com
