CSU Saxophone Professor Receives Prestigious National Award

Columbus State University professor Joe Girard and his saxophone quartet, the Donald Sinta Quartet, received the Gold Medal this weekend in the 2018 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.

“The Fischoff is the largest chamber music competition in the country,” said Scott Harris, Director of the Schwob School of Music. “It is a prestigious award that counts some of the world's finest ensembles as laureates.”

After serving in a visiting capacity, Dr. Girard will be returning to CSU as assistant professor of music in saxophone in the fall.
