Ikechi Onyenaka Quintet ~ Release Celebration “City Dreams"

Born in Austin, Texas and raised in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, Ikechi Onyenaka is a 24-year-old saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording artist on the rise in the Philadelphia Music Scene. Although his primary instrument is the alto saxophone, he also plays the tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, clarinet, piano, keyboard, bass, and drums. Ikechi’s musical journey began in 2006 when he became a member of the Highland Park Elementary School concert band in the 4th grade. He had recently started playing the clarinet and was just getting his feet wet in instrumental music. He played classical music for a year and was later accepted into the schools Jazz Band in the 5th grade. Being a member of this band was a life changing experience for him because his late band director, Brad Schoener, stressed the importance and fun of improvisation. He connected with jazz music on a deep level and sought out to teach himself jazz clarinet. After years of perfecting his sound on the clarinet, Ikechi decided to purchase an alto saxophone in the 9th grade in hopes a achieving the sound that he was looking for.
