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). We encourage everyone to pre-register so we can make sure to have enough t-shirts and music for everyone.

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 need volunteers to help at rehearsals at both events! Players are welcome to volunteer, as are friends, parents, and siblings. Sign up online to volunteer for Sacramento or San Jose. Thank you!
