The World Saxophone Congress is a festival gathering approximately 1000 saxophonists and other musicians from all over the world. It is held once every three years at a different congress centre in a different country. The Congress presents an opportunity to meet saxophonists from many countries and to listen to various concerts and performances.
Daily, a full-schedule of various performances will take place simultaneously in up to five halls of Cankarjev dom. Each active participant will have the opportunity to give his performance either as a soloist or in a group. Participants will be granted free admission to all concerts of saxophonists from all over the world performing as soloists, with piano accompaniment, or in duos, trios, quartets, chamber ensembles etc. Each of the five days will be concluded by an evening concert of the orchestra and outstanding international soloists from all over the world.
Conferences, lectures, master-classes, clinics and exhibitions of saxophone manufacturers, additional equipment, discography and sheet-music publications will also take place during the Congress. A detailed programme will be published after the end of registration period.
There are no limitations for participation. Traditionally there is very high interest for participation among saxophone players (professionals, professors, amateurs, students, quartets, ensembles...) and others involved in saxophone music (composers, conductors...)
Each active participant may perform at the Congress up to 25 minutes either as a soloist or in any type of group (it should consist a saxophone) interpreting classical, jazz, contemporary or any other saxophone literature. All styles are welcome.
