The entire “Family of Saxophones” is featured - the tiny sopranino, the soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass and the rare and monstrous 6’8” contrabass (described by The Los Angeles Times as “…an instrument with the stature of a power forward in the NBA and a pitch that makes a foghorn sound effeminate.”) Together they create incredibly innovative music with a rich ensemble sound covering an amazing range of over six octaves.
The NUCLEAR WHALES repertoire includes classical, jazz, swing, and a plethora of original works as well as a tribute to the ocean’s whales which inspired the Orchestra’s name. From Bach, Mozart, and Strauss to Ellington, Gershwin and Sousa, the WHALES leave no musical genre unexplored.
