International Saxophone Meeting in Nova Gorica SAXGO22

Nova Gorica, June 28 – July 8 2022      


For the 25th year in a row, Nova Gorica will once again be the gathering point of young sax players from Slovenia and abroad. The international meeting is gaining a higher profile year after year among sax players and lovers. The 2022 edition will once again have a festival side and the International Saxophone Competition.

Led by Art Directors Jan Gričar and Boštjan Simon, accomplished saxophone players from around the world are convened to Nova Gorica to contribute to the varied and rich programme of the festival. The concerts in and around Nova Gorica will offer us the chance of listening to the sound of saxophones in an array of different genres from classics to jazz and other styles that reveal its expressive capabilities.
