The Georgia Southern University Clarinet Quartet, under the direction of Dr. Linda A. Cionitti, performs several times a year on campus, at area public schools, and throughout the state. The ensemble has performed at the Vandoren/Buffet Clarinet Choir Festival in Atlanta and the Georgia Music Educators’ Convention in Savannah and was selected to present a concert in conjunction with the Savannah Music Festival.
The Georgia Southern University Flute Choir performs a variety of music, from full flute ensemble to duos, trios, and quartets. The Flute Choir is directed by Ms. Diane Kessel.

Since its inception in 1999, Southern Saxophones and the Southern Quartet have performed for ArtsFest, Winds at Southern, Earth Day, the Better Breathers Association, Scholar’s Day, Downtown Statesboro’s F1rst Friday, in City Market Savannah, and at the Georgia Music Educators Association in-service conference. Our saxophone students have performed at Atlanta Sax Day, regional meetings of the North American Saxophone Alliance, the Carolina Saxophone Festival, the US Navy Band’s International Saxophone Symposium, and the Southeastern Saxophone Symposium.
