Catskill's adventurous Bridge Street Theatre opened its 2019 Season on January 6 with a take-no-prisoners performance by the Zelos Saxophone Quartet. Winner of the 2018 Frances Walton Competition, this vibrant and youthful ensemble, based in San Jose, CA, presented a jaw-dropping array of classic and contemporary works. Now, the theatre bookends its season with a performance by the ensemble's only female member, the astonishing Robin Lacey (accompanied at the piano by Dan Chien) on Saturday November 30, 2019, at 7:30pm.

While finishing up her Master's degree in music performance at San Jose State University, under the direction of Dr. Michael Hernandez, Robin has performed concertos (Villa-Lobos' "Fantasia on tenor saxophone" and von Koch's "Concerto for Alto Saxophone") with several orchestras, such as the Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra (Palo Alto, CA), the SJSU Orchestra (San Jose, CA) and the Roberts Wesleyan College Orchestra (Rochester, NY).
