THE AUSTRALIAN SAXOPHONE ORCHESTRA
The Australian Saxophone Orchestra formed in 2015 for its inaugural performances at the SaxOpen – 17th World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, France. These professional and highly regarded Australian saxophonists reside throughout the world and share an appreciation for the music from their country. This music depicts the multi-cultural influences that Australia enjoys in addition to the programmatic representation of the wide brown land known as Terra Australis. Brought together again by Dr Diana Tolmie (conductor), this group has reformed especially for the 18th World Saxophone Congress and Melbourne International Saxophone Festival.
