2017 National Saxophone Symposium
The 2017 National Saxophone Symposium came to Cape Town recently and was hosted by Matthew Lombard (USA) and Justin Bellairs who headed the Classical and Jazz workshops respectively. The attendees learned everything from sound production and technique development to jazz sax setups, turnarounds and bebop articulation. The artists also impressed in their afternoon recital and evening concert. The highlight was a Massed Saxophone Orchestra made up of all the participants which closed the evening.
