About the North Texas Euphonium Quartet

The North Texas Euphonium Quartet has emerged as the leader among a formidable crop of new euphonium quartets from across the globe. NTEQ has become one of the most active young chamber ensembles in the United States through performances at universities and music conferences across the U.S., commissioning of new works specifically for euphonium quartet, and educational outreach with young euphonium players. Each member of NTEQ has been a finalist in the world renowned Leonard Falcone International Euphonium Solo Competition, and combined the group blends masterful solo playing with a uniformity of sound that few achieve. The North Texas Euphonium Quartet is dedicated to the advancement of the chamber medium of the euphonium quartet as well as to the continued advancement of the euphonium itself, and is excited to offer composers the unique opportunity to write for an ensemble whose repertoire is just now being formed.
