William (Billy) Cofrances has been playing the saxophone since he was 10 years old. Growing up with jazz musician parents, music was a huge part of his life. Bill attended ACES Educational Center for the Arts magnet high school in New Haven, CT, where he met his wife Maria Cofrances, a classically trained opera singer. He then continued his musical education at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Bill has played all over Connecticut and New York City with the Billy Cofrances Jazz Quartet. He has had the privilege to play with incredible musicians throughout his career and has been a major philanthropist in the arts. Bill and his family moved to Florida in 2020, and are looking forward to immersing themselves into the Martin County arts scene.
