Andrew R. Steinberg, Music Director
Saxophonist and conductor Andrew R. Steinberg has been recognized for his “beautiful tone” as well as his “astute and refined leadership” throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. As a concertizing soloist and the Music Director of the Megalopolis Saxophone Orchestra, Dr. Steinberg has sought to perform needlessly neglected works from the repertoire alongside music by today’s composers. An advocate of music that challenges popular conceptions of the saxophone, his performances focus on works that highlight the “Sound-of-Sax” in ways never heard before, particularly in terms of timbre and aesthetic approach.
In addition to performance activities, Dr. Steinberg’s passion for the rich history of the saxophone has resulted in lectures at venues including Boston University, New England Conservatory, Brookline Adult & Community Education, as well as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The scope of his research has focused on topics such as The Life of Adolphe Sax, The Saxophone in the Weimar Republic, Historically Informed Performance Practice of the Saxophone Repertoire, as well as The “Rascherian” Approach.
Andrew R. Steinberg serves as Artist-Faculty at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts, and is Founder and Music Director of the Megalopolis Saxophone Orchestra.
