We play a wide variety of music, from traditional folk songs, modern pop and rock, to film music, jazz and classical works.

We are pleased to be led by a highly experienced Musical Director, Tony Rifugiato. Tony is a professional musician who’s worked in many different genres from classical to musical theatre, pop, rock, jazz and funk. He is an area music leader for Leicester-Shire Schools Music Service and leads a number of bands and orchestras in the East Midlands Area.

We also have some talented arrangers within our group who have written bespoke arrangements especially for the Phoenix Saxophone Orchestra. You can hear one of them here – Jonathan Shaw’s arrangement of Giovanni Gabrieli’s ‘Sacrae Symphoniae’ (1597), recorded individually in Covid-19 lockdown and spliced together by Jonathan! Read more…
