A former sponsored amateur skateboarder and punk bassist, Todd Rewoldt (stage name "SAXIMUS" with his hypermodern virtuosic ensemble SWARMIUS) 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 in the styles of classical, modern, electroacoustic and jazz, his hundreds of performances have taken him throughout the United States and to important concert venues in Sweden, Germany, Italy, Mexico, China, 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,” "seductive,"and “displaying amazing technique.” Rewoldt is a Selmer Artist and performs on Selmer Saxophones exclusively.
