Where does the audience get tickets?

Ticket information is available by clicking here or copying and pasting this link to your browser: http://www.waapa.ecu.edu.au/performances-and-events/performances/2017/massed-saxophone-project

Do participants need a ticket?

No, only those who are attending the concert and not performing.

BUT you do need to register before the 18th August

What can I bring to the rehearsal

Please bring your saxophone, a snack and if you have one, a fold-up stand, just in case we have thousands of saxophone players at the event! There will be catering available to purchase, so bring some money and your concert attire (read on…). Finally, bring a sense of humour, your good cheer and a funny story...

What do I wear at the concert?

Of course this is very, very important. Again this year, let's wear all black with a 'splash of red'.

As a participant, will I be able to see the first half of the concert?

If there are any unsold tickets, then participants might be able to sit in the auditorium for the first half to see Rob Buckland Matt Styles, and Basement Saxx perform. If this is a sell-out performance, then we’ll sort out something…

Will parts be available ahead of time?

As always - I hope so.....

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any queries, please email me: m.styles@ecu.edu.au
