Sovereign Saxophone Octet
(8 Saxophones)

The Sovereign Saxophone Octet was formed in late 2002, after two of the founder members had such a good time playing octet music at Richard Ingham’s summer sax course at Knuston Hall that they decided they couldn’t bear to wait until the following August to repeat the experience. The players are drawn from all across the North-West of England and they have a regular rehearsal venue at Lymm in Cheshire. Their repertoire includes jazz, folk-songs, classical and baroque transcriptions, show songs, and original pieces for saxophone octet, many of them composed or arranged by members of the octet

Programme to include
Gabrieli: Canzon Primi Toni
Bach: Sheep May Safely Graze
Delibes: Flower Duet from Lakme
