Aberdeenshire Saxophone Orchestra

Cat Evison and Mike Brogan
Ensemble type

Aberdeenshire Saxophone Orchestra is the only saxophone orchestra in Scotland covering the full instrumental range from bass to sopranino saxophones.

We make the more unusual sizes of saxophones available on loan to our members.

Saxophone Workshops

The orchestra holds playing technique workshops on some Saturday afternoons from between 2:30 and 5:30pm at The Hopeville Social club.

Non-Members are welcome. Check our Workshops Page Click Here  for the content and price of each workshop.

What we do

Under the expert guidance of our two music directors, Cat Evison and Mike Brogan, the orchestra explores a diverse repertoire of music from classical arrangements through jazz, folk and rock to contemporary compositions and we have worked with several composers and arrangers. For those so inclined, we can sometimes offer the chance to experience conducting, arranging and composing for large ensembles.

We are a non-audition group and members of any age and of a a wide range of playing standards are welcome. We are happy to gain new players. 

We charge a membership fee to adult players but please come along to a free taster session and try before you buy! Children under 16 and those in full-time education participate free.
