Rite of Passage Massed Sax Project 2014

Thursday 28th August, 7:30pm, Music Auditorium WAAPA.
Tickets available from WAAPA

Launched in 2013, Rite of Passage is a unique, cross – institutional, international collaborative project that links the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM, Manchester, United Kingdom) and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. The first and only of its kind in Australia, this event also brings together staff and students from a number of schools across Western Australia, along with saxophone enthusiasts from the wider community. Led by WAAPA Saxophone lecturer Dr Matt Styles, this will be a night where jazz, classical and contemporary music meet, say a friendly ‘hello’ and become long lasting friends.

Last year, almost 50 saxes participated – this year we’re hoping to double that!

If you’d like to be involved or have any questions, contact Dr Matt Styles via email.
