Market Harborough’s Phoenix Saxophone Orchestra is inviting saxophonists to join them for an all-day saxophone workshop led by the Orchestra’s Patron, international performing saxophonist Gerard McChrystal.
The workshop costs £30 including tea and coffee.
The workshop is open to all saxophonists and will focus on live ensemble playing, with tips and advice on sax technique, learning, performing and getting the most from your instrument as we go along.
We will be playing a selection of music from our sponsor Saxtet Publications, who we would like to thank wholeheartedly for their ongoing support of Phoenix Saxophone Orchestra.
The music we’ll be focusing on is around Grade 4-5 standard, but parts will be sent out in advance, so there’s no need to worry about sight reading! Whatever the level of your playing, the opportunity to play with a large ensemble, learn from fellow musicians and receive first hand, expert advice from a professional saxophonist like Gerard is one not to be missed. We are looking forward to welcoming saxophonists from far and wide to this special event.
Multi award winning saxophonist Gerard McChrystal is Professor of Saxophone at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and also teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff. Born in Derry, Northern Ireland, Gerard has played with leading musicians and orchestras in more than 35 countries worldwide and has recorded 15 CDs. His main ambition is to develop collaborations and encourage composers to write for the saxophone.
