SOS Saxophone Orchestra
The members of the orchestra are renowned saxophonists coming from different countries such as Slovenia, Croatia and Poland and are most revered and successful educators, soloists, musical arrangers, composers, jazz and chamber musicians.
The SOS saxophone orchestra’s mission is presenting audience with supreme music, whether it is a transcription of the masterpieces of classical music, originals or new works, standard jazz music or the sound of big-bands.
One of the main peculiarities of the orchestra is certainly the fact that it performs without a conductor. This is an added advantage despite a large number of its members since the orchestra can perfectly apply the idea of chamber music and pursue a common goal – pampering the audience with an outstanding music and performance.
New music and the importance of the cooperation and integration of the musical experiences and energies which solely enable the projection of unique musical experience, have always been central to the orchestra. Therefore the SOS orchestra fosters close associations with many acclaimed soloists and so far it has had many guest appearances, including, among others, Jean – Yves Fourmeau – saxophone, Tymur Melnyk – violin, Marco Pierobon – trumpet, Ljubiša Jovanović – flute, Ognjen Popović – clarinet, Oto Vrhovnik –saxophone, Matej Grahek – flute, Jože Kotar – clarinet.
