Saxophony is a saxophone ensemble that started up in Hampshire in spring 2010. We rehearse fortnightly on Sundays from 5.30pm until 7.30pm, at the Arch, next to Chandlers Ford train station.

Aimed at intermediate and advanced players the music is fun, varied and occasionally challenging too!  Membership fees are £18 per term. We play pieces such as the Glenn Miller Medley, James Bond Theme , Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, I Got Rhythm, Everybody Needs Somebody , Haven't Met You Yet, Cagney and Lacey , and  more.... (click on the red links to listen to Saxophony performing these songs)

All pieces are arranged for sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor and baritone with percussion. A mixture of original sax ensemble compositions and arrangements of popular songs means there is something for everyone.
