We raised £250 on the BOAT Festival day which, added to our JustGiving donations, gives a grand total of £925 for Chestnut Tree Housechildrens Hospice.
Saxshop is a Brighton based community saxophone ensemble led by Beccy Perez Rork and Mark Bassey. Founded in 2003 by Simon D'souza, many of the original players from that very first course still attend. During term time we meet on Wednesday evenings at
If you decide to join, you'll find us to be a very friendly bunch. Players of all abilities can come along although it is helpful if you have at least basic music reading skills.
Saxshop will join the Euphoria Steel Band led by Rachel Hayward in the brilliant parade down to the seafront 21st December ~ starts 6.30pm from Brighton Town centre to marine Parade for Fireworks.
We play arrangements written by our tutors Beccy Perez Rork and Mark Bassey. The music has a Jazz bias with Funk, Latin and Pop sneaking in as well.
At the end of each term we perform the tunes we've been working on with a jazz rhythm section. At the end of the summer term we often play in the open air, The Pavilion Gardens in Brighton or on the Brighton Bandstand we have also performed at various venues e.g. Burning of the Clocks, The Olympic Torch Relay, and Lark in the Park, part of the Brighton Festival Fringe.
