Rehearsals: Tuesdays, view up-to-date rehearsal timings
A slightly smaller group, our sax group have a selection of ragtime, folk and jazzy tunes for saxophones of all sizes.
Sax Group perform regularly throughout the year, we are particularly popular for Christmas carols! We join the rest of MPS on our annual tour abroad, and have recently played concerts in St Mark's Church and Interval Cafe & Bar in Sheffield. We also have a good relationship with Sheffield Students' Union's Volunteering Office, playing at many charity events for children and in care-homes.
Sax Group rehearsals are also timed right before our Big Band on a Tuesday, making it perfect for those who want to be part of both bands. Like all of the MPS ensembles, Sax Group is non-auditioned and new members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining, please visit our Facebook group. Sax Group is suitable for all saxophone and clarinet players.
Set list favourites: The Entertainer, Cantina Band, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Cantaloupe Island
Perfect for: busking, band stands, town fairs, Christmas carols, volunteering events
