Sarah is the proud owner of a beautiful Yanagisawa A-991 alto sax, currently mastering its technique at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz within the Hartt School of Music (University of Hartford). Sarah was raised listening to a wide variety of music, but always had a special love for jazz. Her father, who plays drums and percussion, gave Sarah her first saxophone at the age of eight. She played lead alto sax for the Marlborough High School jazz band and performed with several famous artists including Dave Pietro and Tom Palance. With several accomplishments under her belt, and diligent practice at her passion, Sarah wouldn’t hesitate to attend the musical program at the University of Hartford.
As with the rest of her troupe, Sarah Hanahan’s Jazz quartet is comprised of aspiring musicians from the Hartt School of Music, bringing with them a fresh, new sound. Emerging from the Hartford college’s jazz program, the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz, these four unique individuals have developed their own energetic spirit that aspires to match those of artists old. Their repertoire consists of original music, but also of their own, swingin’ interpretations of certain American standards.
