Te Kōkī, New Zealand School of Music, in collaboration with Saxcess, New Zealand's premiere classical saxophone quartet, is hosting SaxFest 2014, a Classical Saxophone Festival over the first weekend of May, 2014.

The Festival at the NZSM Kelburn Campus is open to classical saxophone players of diverse backgrounds and experience from across New Zealand. The participants will have the opportunity to take part in or observe masterclasses and concerts, and receive individual and ensemble tuition from some of our most experienced and accomplished classical saxophonists. These tutors include NZSM Lecturer and Head of Woodwind Deborah Rawson, NZSM Artist Teacher Simon Brew and alumnus Hayden Sinclair.

This year Saxfest will also feature international guest artists Niels Bijl and James Campbell. Niels, a classical saxophonist based in the Netherlands, is an internationally renowned soloist and a member of the world-famous Aurelia Saxophone Quartet. James Campbell is an eminent Canadian clarinetist currently on a Chamber Music New Zealand with the New Zealand String Quartet.
