Kodachrome is a multi award-winning saxophone quartet that has seen fast success. Since it’s formation in September of 2022, Kodachrome has placed first in the 10th Coltman Chamber Music Competition, 10th Plowman Chamber Music Competition, and most recently received the Gold Medal at the 50th Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. As an ensemble, Kodachrome enjoys playing a wide range of music, but focuses on working with composers on pieces that move the instrument forward and provide an enriching experience for audiences. Kodachrome has several tours scheduled for the 2023/2024 season and is looking forward to sharing more about those soon.

Kodachrome is a saxophone quartet of four graduate students from Arizona State University where they are under the tutelage of Dr. Christopher Creviston. Kodachrome has premiered several new works by Jenni Watson, Hendel Almétus and Eduardo Orea. Kodachrome is comprised of Calvin Wong (soprano), Jade Deatherage (alto), Siobhan Plouffe (tenor) and Bonson Lee (baritone). As individuals, members have competed and performed extensively in the United States as well as internationally and have studied with artists such as Otis Murphy, Kenneth Tse, Vincent David and Chien-Kwan Lin. One of the primary goals of Kodachrome is to promote contemporary underrepresented composers and provoke the general public’s interest in concert music.
