Well I know it’s been a busy old year, but honestly, where does the time go……?  I hadn’t even got around to putting the programme for our concert at last year’s Buxton Fringe* up here, and already it’s time to tell everyone about the next one.

The Sovereign Saxophone Octet will be returning to our regular spot in the Buxton Methodist Church at 8 p.m. on Sunday 19th July, 2015.  Full address and ticket information is available via the Buxton Fringe 2015 website.  (Scroll down to July 19th to find us.)  We’ll be introducing lots of new tunes and arrangements this year, as well as a few old favourites, so put the date in your diary now.  We look forward to seeing lots of you there!

Welcome to our Blog!

Welcome to the Sovereign Saxophone Octet’s new blog!

All the usual kind of stuff will find it’s way on here, especially as July (and Buxton) approach – but more of that later.  We hope you enjoy our blog.  If it inspires anyone to come to our concerts, or investigate the wonderful world of saxophonic meanderings further, even better!
