The renowned Apollo Saxophone Quartet (ASQ) will be performing in Glossop Parish Church on Friday 22nd February 2019, as part of the Glossop Music Festival. ASQ and the Glossop Music Festival, in partnership with the Dark Peak Music Foundation will offer educational and performance opportunities to young Derbyshire sax players in advance of the concert.

Two members of the Quartet, Carl Raven and Jim Fieldhouse, will run a workshop in the afternoon for sax players of all abilities. The aim is to create an ad hoc Sax Ensemble to prepare and play specially arranged pieces. The pieces will then be performed before the ASQ concert in the evening to the full audience. Students from the RNCM Saxophone Department will support the event.

The workshop will consist of two sessions of rehearsal running from 2pm until 5.30. Refreshments will, of course, be available. The event will include rehearsals and ensemble playing and there will be ample opportunity for one-to-one advice throughout.

The players will then perform their pieces before a full audience at the evening's concert, and have reserved places, free of charge for the remainder of the concert.

This is a wonderful opportunity for young sax players of all abilities to get some first-class tuition, meet professional players and conservatoire students and gain experience of live concert performance.
