Robin Lacey’s beautiful and warm sound on saxophone has been heard in venues across the U.S as a soloist and in chamber music, (National Music Festival, MD, Festival South, MS, Beethoven Center Concert Series, CA, 41st International Navy Band Saxophone Symposium, VA, Herbst Theater, SF, North American Saxophone Alliance, OR). While finishing up her masters 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).

Robin holds the chair for tenor saxophone in the Zelos Quartet, which has placed in the MTNA competition for the last two years. Recently the Zelos Quartet won the grand prize of the Frances Walton Competition in Seattle, which gained them a radio appearance and week-long tour in the North-west region of the U.S. The Zelos Quartet frequently performs throughout the Bay area and in NASA conferences. For more information on the Zelos Quartet visit their Web site at

Pianist Dan Chien has performed in, music-directed, and sound-designed musicals and plays for a number of area schools and community groups. He is the organist at Roxbury's Jay Gould Memorial Reformed Church; has directed the choirs of the Hobart United Methodist Church and the United Church of Roscoe; has played euphonium in the Catskill Valley Wind Ensemble, the Oneonta Community Concert Band, and the Delhi Community Band, keyboard in the Catskill Symphony and Utica Symphony Orchestras, recorder in the Catskill Consort of Early Music, and tuba in the Roxbury Brass; and has sung in the Community Chorale of the Catskills, and in opera choruses and the festival chorus at the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice.

This is our annual Holiday Concert and admission is free though donations will be gratefully accepted. Catered refreshments are served after the concert at no additional charge.
