The Royal Northern College have released a video about its popular annual Saxophone Day, which takes place next month.
The 15th RNCM Saxophone Day will take place on Sunday 9 November 2014. In the video, co-directors Rob Buckland and Andy Scott talk about the event and how the format has developed over the years. In particular, they explain that the activities are aimed at people of all ages from eight to 80 and of all levels from beginners upwards - what unites everyone is a common love of the saxophone.
Rob and Andy also comment on how the saxophone day removes the barrier between performer and audience. At RNCM, because the event has been running for 14 years, many people know each other and return each year to meet up, giving the day a friendly family feel. Rob and Andy themselves know most of the regular participants and look forward to seeing everyone each year.
