In 2012 five saxophonists converged in Vienna from Italy, USA, Belgium, Poland and Chile. United by a modern conception of virtuosity and the incessant urge to push the limits of performance, a new ensemble had arrived. The first step of their journey took them from the front door of conservatory, straight to the streets of Vienna. After an unforgettable year of running from the police, surviving freezing temperatures and dealing with the angry shopkeepers the time had come to take their act from street to the stage. After countless hours of work, a thrilling performance was born. Their debut show, SAX VOYAGE, is a multi-continental musical journey including classical music, various kinds of European ethnic music, the seductive dance music of South America and some of the most popular Hollywood Hits from the USA. To complement the diverse program, the show is presented with theatrical elements: acting, dance, costumes, props, acrobatics and lighting. After many performances around Europe and Asia, FIVE SAX has claimed its place on the international scene.
