National Saxophone Choir

BrassWindFix came across this little gem on YouTube recently – the National Saxophone Choir of GB performing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody at the Arts Fest in 2009 and thought we would share it with all our Saxophone clients!

Click here to hear and see them in action!  There are other videos on YouTube showing some of their repertoire – Bach Tocatta and Crazy Rag being pretty awesome performances too!

The National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain is a lively, talented and enterprising ensemble of saxophonists committed to presenting challenging but accessible music to as wide an audience as possible.  The NSC was founded by Nigel Wood in 2003. It has already made a big impact on the saxophonic world and currently attracts players and guest conductors from all over the country to its monthly rehearsals in Birmingham. Standards are rigorously maintained by audition but the ethos is friendly, co-operative and adventurous.

It’s nearly the season for – dare we say it – Christmas Concerts.  If you have a diary full of bookings for the season ahead then don’t forget that your saxophone needs some TLC to keep it in tip-top condition.  BrassWindFix offer a basic service right through to the monster of all services!  Now taking bookings for October onwards and don’t forget that we can also supply you with Rico and Vandoren reeds and accessories too!  Pop into the workshop and see us or order your accessories from our on-line shop.

Back to School

Instruments-BrassWindFixWell the summer is nearly over and its nearly time for parents all over the country to start frantically buying everything needed for the new school term starting in September.

The list of items needed for the new school term is never-ending!  Not to mention frustrating!  What used to be the simple buying of standard school uniforms from Marks & Spencer now seems to be impeded with current fashions and teenage cries of  “There’s no way I’m wearing THAT skirt/top/coat”” combined with hours and hours spent trapsing round the shops searching for the right school bag and what seems like a suitcase full of contents.

Your child may be considering taking up a new musical instrument, or already have music lessons,  and be looking forward to returning to a term of  exams and the endless list of Christmas concerts.  Over the summer, with all the excitement of holidays and excursions, it’s easy to forget that your brass and woodwind instruments need regular maintenance to keep them in the best condition and be ready for the hours of playing ahead.

It may be that you’ve been super organised and had this instrument serviced or repaired over the summer months.  However, it is something that many parents and students forget or don’t consider.  Keeping your woodwind and brass instrument in the best possible condition and regularly serviced means it’s always ready for the most challenging of playing and won’t let you down in an exam or that all-important solo performance.  If you haven’t thought about servicing any woodwind or brass instrument over the summer then please think about booking it in now!  BrassWindFix offer an excellent service and repair service at highly competitive prices and excellent workmanship is always guaranteed.  Although BrassWindFix are currently booked up solid in the diary for the next six weeks so if you want your instrument serviced or repaired before the Christmas Concerts begin then ring to book it in the diary NOW!

You may have totally forgotten to buy new saxophone reeds or clarinet reeds?  Do you need bore oil to keep your wooden clarinet lubricated? Do you need a new silver cloth to keep the keywork clean on your flutes or clarinets?  For all your woodwind and brass accessories please visit our online shop where all these items are available.  They can be posted out to you the next day to ensure receipt in time for the new school term.
