Calling all saxophonists! The UK’s largest sax gathering is back this November, bigger and better than ever.

Join us for a jam-packed schedule of participatory workshops and concerts as we throw open our doors to players of all ages and abilities for the annual RNCM Saxophone Day.

Guests include dynamic quartet Marici Saxes, who share their talent during a lunchtime performance, award-winning saxophonist and RNCM alumna Gillian Blair, who showcases works from her debut solo album in our Spotlight event, and French alto saxophonist Baptiste Herbin, who rounds off the day with an exciting mix of Brazilian-inspired originals infused with his love of jazz standards.

And don’t forget that you can visit our expansive trade exhibition throughout the day and even take to the stage yourself as part of our legendary Massed Saxophone Orchestra.

The RNCM is extremely grateful to Vandoren Paris and Henri Selmer Paris for their generous support for this celebration of all things saxophone.

We can’t wait to welcome you!

Rob Buckland, Andy Scott artistic directors
