International Saxophone Week

After several years of Corona, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam is organising another International Saxophone Week from 18 to 23 March. This time, two teachers from abroad have been recruited: Carrie Koffman (USA, Hartford University) and Simon Diricq (Belgium, Brussels Conservatory). They will give concerts, workshops and masterclasses during the week. The week will be concluded by the CvA-Sax Ensemble (with all students of the saxophone class in Amsterdam) with a lunch concert in the Grote Zaal of the Concertgebouw.
