RNCM Saxophone Day 2014
Sunday 9 November
Returning for its 14th year, the UK’s leading saxophone event takes place two days after the 200th anniversary of the birth of Adolphe Sax, the Belgian musician and instrument designer who gave us the instrument we celebrate at the RNCM Saxophone Day.

This is also the first RNCM festival to take place in our redeveloped Concert Hall. With these significant occasions in mind, this year’s Saxophone Day promises to be the best yet – with participatory classes for players of all saxes, a huge trade exhibition and the chance to hear some of the leading performers working today, this is truly an event for all saxophone enthusiasts.
Rob Buckland, Andy Scott artistic directors
Day Tickets £34 – please call the box office on 0161 907 5555 to book
Gary Carpenter recommends...
Winner of a British Composer Award in 2006, Gary has also been shortlisted for an RPS Award (2012) and the Prix Europa (Music Category) in 2013. Recent projects include SET, a tenor sax concerto for Iain Ballamy, and a two-year choral project, commissioned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
Being a relatively fresh arrival at the instrumental party, the saxophone has been courted by pretty well every genre of music, and its resultant ubiquity is, for me as a composer, one of its greatest attributes. To encounter it in more or less all its fantastical manifestations, you can’t do better than this Rob Buckland and Andy Scott curated Saxophone Day. It’s also Adolphe Sax’s 200th birthday! Party guests will include Mark Lockheart, Philippe Geiss, John Paricelli, Martin France and the RNCM Saxophone Orchestra.
