Melbourne Saxophone is pleased to launch a brand new program for saxophonists in the 2018 Melbourne International Saxophone Festival - JuniorSAX!
Musicians will have the unique and exciting opportunity to play alongside internationally renowned saxophonist, Philippe Geiss, as well as to work with Erin Royer, Head of Saxophone at the University of Western Australia.
This program has been especially designed for musicians playing at AMEB Grade 3 to 4 standard (or equivalent) who will learn two new pieces for saxophone ensemble, meet like-minded musicians, and be a part of the festival! Participants will engage in rehearsals and tutorials, culminating in a mini-performance for family members at the end.
Included in this program are complimentary tickets to attend the four feature concerts on the Saturday and Sunday evening.
