Since our last newsletter we have been busy commissioning and preparing many new pieces.
We have also been recording more YouTube videos. Our latest recording focused on the Quintet section, and you can view all our videos on the SXP YouTube channel. We have now had over 250,000 hits!
The 'Sax Family 7' (SF7) has recently produced some YouTube videos for Saxtet Publications including the evocative Man-Mou, featuring Gerard McChrystal on sopranino saxophone, and Craig Rickard's toe-tapping number Oileáin Reel, soon to be published by Saxtet Publications.
With the release of TrinityGuildhall's new syllabi (valid 2013-15), we are proud to announce that we have over 60 titles featured on the following:
Great Bowden: From the National Saxophone Choir, a smaller ensemble evolved in order to feature seven different types of saxophone which include the minuscule soprillo and majestic bass.
