An all day workshop led by Nigel Wood, founder of the National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain and one of the world’s leading players was recently held at Church Langton Community Hall for local saxophone choir, The Great Bowden Recital Trust (GBRT) and some distinguished guests.



Liz Pearce from the GBRT saxophone choir, who organised the event, said: “It was an absolute honour for us to have Nigel come along to take us through our paces. We all learned a lot and it was amazing how quickly he got us working together and listening to each other to make a really good sound.”

The 15 strong GBRT saxophone choir was established in 2010, and plays a range of classical and modern ensemble pieces under the direction of musical director Tony Rifugiato.

The choir, which rehearses in Great Bowden every other Sunday morning from 10am to 12 noon, is open to people of all ages - you just need to able to read music fluently and play to a minimum grade 4 standard.

Right now, the choir is particularly keen to recruit tenor and soprano players. If you’re interested, please contact Liz Pearce at saxchoir.gbrt@gmail.com or give her a call on 01664 822751.
