Massed Sax Event 2017
Now in its 5th year This project brings together saxes players from all stages of learning and life to rehearse for one afternoon, meet and play with WAAPA musicians, along with some of the world’s finest saxophonists and perform in a public concert that same day! In 2013 this project involved over 40 saxophonists, in 2014 the number grew to showcase almost 60 and in 2015, over 80 saxophonists on the one stage! In 2016, we had 104 saxophone players on the one stage! Time to make 2017 even bigger!!!
Last years project brought together classical, jazz and contemporary styles in a night that featured World and Australian premiere performances of cross-genre works by Australian and UK composers. We’ve had players and teachers from all over WA, South Australia and even Japan. A cohort of ‘Brisbanians’ are currently aiming to make the trip this year!
2017 sees a few changes in how this will be run – here’s a summary:
Venue: Churchlands Senior High School Music Auditorium (we need a bigger stage!)
Date: Sunday 27th August – for all rehearsals, activities and the concert.
Time: 1pm for warm up activities, rehearsals, artist interviews and more…
Concert: 7pm – on the same day!
Visiting Artists: George Garzone (US) and Rob Buckland (UK)
Enrollments for participants will open soon and information about ticket sales for the concert will be available here.
