Based in Los Angeles, the Noir Saxophone Quartet was formed in May 2013. Lee Worley Raby, Laura Kramer and Cameron Domingues will perform on the soprano, tenor, and baritone saxophone. They attended USC's Thornton School of Music and have worked together in various musical capacities, including chamber ensembles, orchestras, wind ensembles, recording sessions, and new music performances.  

The quartet's newest member, alto saxophonist Nicholas Casillas, is a graduate of UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music and joined the group in January 2014. Together, the four saxophonists and educators blend their artistry, creating a unique and captivating ensemble. Their repertoire includes everything from Bach to Ellington, featuring standard repertoire and new music written for the saxophone quartet idiom.

Kramer teaches saxophone at Cal Poly. She will perform as guest artist on the Cal Poly Wind Bands' June 5 Spring Concert, on which one of her compositions will also have a world premiere.

The performance will include music written for saxophone quartet by David Maslanka, Tim Davies, J.S. Bach and Eugène Bozza.
