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

We are very sorry to announce that we have cancelled our 2020 events due to the pandemic. This is the first time in 27 years that we have not performed – but we are planning to be back in 2021!

Many thanks to the record 228 players who participated in our 26th annual San Jose event in 2019 (photos here!), and the record 67 players who played at our Sacramento performances!

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!

Registration for the 2021 events will open in the fall.

These events are volunteer-powered, and we will be recruiting volunteers for both Sacramento and San Jose.
