The Nordic Saxophone Festival

The Nordic Saxophone Festival is a unique student festival, focussing on the classical and contemporary saxophone in chamber music settings.  Experience four days of chamber music playing in the wonderful city of Aarhus in Denmark, together with many other saxophone players! 

The festival is unique in the way, that is focuses mainly on playing chamber music and concerts together with other players, and in this way broadening especially the students performance skills and international network. 

Participants are divided into different ensembles that work together during the festival, and prepare pieces to be performed at the concerts in the festival.
 In this way the students will get to play with many different players, get to know a lot of new repertoire and get some great experience on stage with playing concerts! 

Participants are encouraged to send in suggestions for possible pieces that could be performed at the festival. 
The final program of the festival depends on whom and how many saxophonists are joining. 

The festival has been taking place (almost) every year since 2009, and is this year held in Musikhuset Aarhus/Denmark, in cooperation with the Royal Academy of Music/Aarhus, on the 10th-13th of April 2022. 

Participation in the festival is free, but all other costs (travels, hotels ect.) are on the participants own account.


Chamber music instructors will be available. 

Deadline for application is the 1st of February 2022.
