ℹ️ About

Saxophones is one of our unauditioned ensembles which offers the chance to play some varied repertoire for soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. The ensemble tackles jazz standards, classical pieces and arrangements of well-known film and show tunes. The weekly rehearsals are great fun and offer the chance for people to try out new techniques and improve their ensemble playing skills. The saxophone ensemble takes part in our outreach programmes in the local community, as the ensemble has been quite a hit with the local schools. Whether you are a newcomer or and advanced player Saxophones is always looking for new players, so why not come along?
