San Jose Saxophone Choir – Newsletter

San Jose Saxophone Choir Newsletter

  • Now that the holidays have passed, we are rehearsing for upcoming performances (probably April). We will keep our edge on standards in our library and try new music both purchased or arranged by our own team of saxologists.
  • Welcome new members!  We have many new members joining us, be sure to introduce yourself to anyone you don't know.  Our studio doors usually open by 7PM on rehearsal nights.  
  • Money!   Our single most costly expense is rehearsal space.  Donations received from performances help to cover some expenses, but we must ask that each member donate regularly to help keep us afloat. $30 each month shouldn't be a hardship but if you really cant, give what you can.  Follow this link to the members page on our website and setup a recurring donation to the group, or do it however you want, just help us please.  We are a 501(C)(3) Public Non-Profit and your monetary donations are fully tax-deductible.

 

  • Many service positions are available, including:
    • Director – We need a conductor, playing is optional
    • Music Librarian – Finale/Sibelius
    • Treasurer – appropriate skillset
    • Secretary – appropriate skillset
    • Promoter – appropriate skillset
    • Rehearsal setup/teardown

Meet Our Saxes…

The San Jose Saxophone Choir enjoys playing every instrument that the saxophone family provides.  Laksar Reese, recording artist, SJSC player and CEO of International Woodwinds shared some of the companies pro-line horns with the SJSC.

 

Jeff and the International Woodwinds Curved Soprano. Jeff’s wife bought him this new toy for his birthday (Thanks Lynda!).  This sax was featured in the SJSC’s John Coltrane tribute concerts in 9/18.  This soprano is in tune throughout it’s range and produces a very sweet tone.

The magnificent International Woodwinds Compact Contra Bass.
