One of the most popular events we stage here during the year, RNCM Saxophone Day is the UK’s largest annual sax gathering. We throw open our doors and welcome players of all ages and abilities and present a day jam-packed with participatory workshops and concerts.
We kick off the proceedings – and give everyone the chance to play – with the now legendary Massed Saxophone Orchestra. This year there are concerts by the Delta Saxophone Quartet and young saxophonists from the Conservatório de Música Calouste Gulbenkian de Braga in Portugal. We also welcome our headliner, the Grammy Award-winning American saxophonist, Eric Marienthal.
