Birmingham Saxophone Day
Sunday 18th October 2015
9.30am to 6.30pm
at Birmingham Conservatoire
The ever evolving Saxophone Department at Birmingham Conservatoire is one of the most vibrant and creative in the UK.
We throw open our doors and invite saxophone students, teachers and enthusiasts to take part in workshops, improvisation classes, ensemble coaching, quartet side-by-side sessions and much more.
Improve your ensemble skills, learn rehearsal techniques, pick up playing tips, check out new gear and discover new music, sharing the pleasure of playing the saxophone with like-minded enthusiasts. The day is open to saxophonists of all abilities, however an approximate level of grade 3 and above is advisable to get the most out of the day.
Your saxophone experts for the day will be the Conservatoire's Saxophone Department head, Naomi Sullivan alongside Conservatoire tutors Andy Tweed and Anna Brooks.
Special guest is Kyle Horch, visiting saxophone consultant, who will present a lunchtime performance with his critically acclaimed ensemble, Flotilla.
There will also be a good selection of trade stands at the event, including June Emerson Wind Music. We'll be taking all our saxophone music and books (approx. 48 boxes!) for you to browse through and buy. Card and cash payments accepted on the day.
£20 (£15 CASS members/U18)
