Following the success of the first 'Saxhorn Fest' event earlier this year, the organisers have released details for the second day which will take place in Richmond in North Yorkshire in February 2019.
The festival on Saturday 2nd February and will be run by founders Katrina Marzella and Helen Varley and will include features and activities that it is hoped will appeal to players of all ages and abilities.
Workshops and attractions
There will be a series of workshops (10:30am — 4:30pm) based at the excellent facilities of the British Army bandroom at Catterick Garrison, including separate workshops aimed specifically at younger delegates.
There will also be a special 'Jazz Set' (4:30pm — 5:30pm) featuring tenor horn player Nat Martin of Foden's Band with his jazz band in a new feature for upcoming stars.
An 'Evening Recital' (7.00pm — 8:30pm) at St Mary's Church in Richmond, will feature Grimethopre baritone star Michael Cavanagh as well as both Katrina and Helen and an 'All-Star Quartet'.
Speaking to 4BR Katrina said: "We were delighted with the success of last year's event and we're really excited to be building on our strong foundations with more ambitious developments this year."
Meanwhile, Helen added: "We're also excited to be able to feature extra talent this year, and it will be great to work with Michael Cavanagh and Nat Martin.
We're thankful to be supported by Band Supplies, Besson and Yamaha, which has allowed us the freedom to make the event even better."
The event is open to all tenor horn and baritone players of any age or ability.
