Todd Rewoldt "Saximus"Affiliation:
Artist's BiographyA 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 an on-call saxophonist with the San Diego Symphony, Orchestra Nova, and principal saxophonist with the San Diego Winds. His recording credits include Nonesuch, Warner Bros., and Aleppo Records.
He currently resides in San Diego, CA, and is Professor of Saxophone at San Diego State University.
