Todd Rewoldt, Saxophone

A former sponsored amateur skateboarder and punk bassist, Todd Rewoldt quickly transferred his skills from the street course and mosh pit into an original saxophone style that is all his own. Since graduating from the Eastman School of Music, he has established himself as a vital member of the modern music community. Equally comfortable performing the music of Glazunov, Stockhausen, or Classical Surf-Punk, his hundreds of performances have taken him throughout the United States and to important concert venues in Sweden, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Japan, Taiwan, Canada, Ireland, and Australia. As a solo saxophonist and founding member of the internationally acclaimed SWARMIUS Ensemble, critics have characterized his performances as virtuosic, and displaying amazing technique.

Dr. Rewoldt is frequently invited to perform at numerous international music festivals, including the Tribeca New Music Festival, Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in Sweden, Mexican Center for Music and Sonic Arts, New West Electro-Acoustic Music Organization, World Saxophone Congress, La Jolla SummerFest, Ussachevsky Memorial Festival, and SEAMUS.

Todd is a first-call saxophonist with the San Diego Symphony and principal saxophonist with the San Diego Winds. His recording credits include Nonesuch, Warner Bros., and Aleppo Records. Rewoldt's method book "Altissimo Studies for Alto Saxophone" and arrangements of works by Lili Boulanger are published by RadnofskyCouperEditions. Todd is a Selmer Artist and performs on Selmer saxophones exclusively.
