Announcement - SaxDay 2010 goes residential

(February 16, 2009)

Lots of people have told us how much they enjoy SaxDay and wish it could be longer, with scope for more sessions.


So, in 2010, SaxDay will be a weekend event. It will be held at the Swanwick Conference Centre in Derbyshire, from 19-21st March 2010.  Swanwick has great facilities including plenty of rooms for playing and good value accommodation.  The tutor team will be the Northern Saxophone Quartet members – Alistair Parnell, Julia Mills, Tony Davis and Sarah Markham, plus James Rae and Nicola Pennill. 
Interested?  There are limited places and you can put your name down to reserve yours now.  Further information, including details of price and bookings will be available soon – check back for updates.  To reserve your place or to be added to the mailing list for further details please contact us.
