Here at Phoenix, our primary aim is to provide adults with an opportunity to have fun playing the saxophone together, and also to advance the art of music through rehearsal and performance of a varied repertoire.
We currently have 15 members playing seven different types of saxophone, from the tiny sopranino through the more commonly-seen soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, to the enormous bass, tubax and contrabass sax.
Between us, we have masses of experience playing with other saxophone groups, ensembles, orchestras, jazz, swing and many other types of band in the UK and, indeed, all over Europe.
We have players with different levels of musical ability and, what’s great about this group is that we all work together to support and help each other develop our musical skills.
We are a friendly and supportive bunch, and we make a great sound too. So why not come along and join us?”
