San Jose Saxophone Christmas is a holiday tradition for saxophonists from all around the SF Bay Area who spend a day each December playing Christmas carols at two public performances.

Many thanks to everyone who came out for our 2021 events in San Jose and Sacramento! In December 2022, we will be celebrating our 28th year of performing in San Jose and year 10 in Sacramento. Join us!

We welcome saxophone players of all types: sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass players. We also welcome unusual saxophones (and sax relatives) – our events often include unusual saxes such as soprillos, Saxellos, C Melody saxes, Conn-O-Saxes, sarusophones, and contrabass saxes!

COVID safety requirements: To keep everyone safe, we followed these requirements during 2021. 

  • All players and volunteers must show either proof of vaccination or a negative test. No exceptions.
  • All players and volunteers must wear masks in the rehearsal halls when not playing.
  • Each of our rehearsal venues is limiting the number of people in the room. We will close online registration once that capacity is reached; only registered players and volunteers will be allowed in the rehearsal spaces.

These events are volunteer-powered. If you can help, please email Ray.
