It was a pleasure to meet the new team 2013, it is going to be very dynamic again this year!
The composers all brought very interesting ideas to share with the musicians, where movement, massages and improvisation is put in front...
… a young and motivated saxophonist? (less than 30 years old)
… familiar with improvisation ?
… playing your instrument for at least six years ?
… eager to be part of an international project ?
During several workshops artistic director Guillaume Orti will select new musicians for the European Saxophone Ensemble. The selected ones will get the unique opportunity to meet leading composers during residencies and tour throughout Europe in the summer and autumn of 2013.
Workshops are open and free for everyone!
