Meet Our Musicans Monday

Each week, we spotlight one of our talented musicians in our “Meet the Musicians Monday” series, a chance to toot our own horn about our skilled music-makers. This week’s musician spotlight is on 2023 Collegiate Competition winner Thomas Bachert, an alto saxophonist and aspiring young music educator from Pittsburgh. He is a graduate of North Hills High School and attends Slippery Rock University for degrees in saxophone performance and music education. He is active in various organizations, including the university wind and jazz ensemble. Bachert recently performed with his saxophone quartet and the ARC Quartet at the International Saxophone Symposium in Fairfax, Virginia.

As a member of the Slippery Rock University Jazz Ensemble, he will be featured on commissioned recording projects at various jazz festivals in Italy and France scheduled for July this year. Our March 4 concert, “The Inextinguishable,” will be Bachert’s orchestral and soloist debut performing Jacques Ibert’s “Concerto da Camera.”
