All sax players are welcome at Saxophone Christmas! This is an all-day event. Players are required to attend the morning rehearsal and both performances. You’ll need to bring a lyre or a music stand.

Please register in advance! You can register the day of the event, but you aren’t guaranteed a t-shirt (and they are cool: you want one). If you’d like to participate in both events, you’ll need to register for each one separately so we can be sure to have music and a t-shirt for you at each event.

We are seeking volunteers to help at BOTH events! You can sign up online to volunteer in Sacramento on Dec. 1 or San Jose on Dec. 15. If you are a student, this is a great way to earn your volunteer hours.
