GREAT GATHERING OF SAXOPHONISTS  

Since 1990, assembling a huge number of saxophonists in the streets every four years, at the time of the International Adolphe Sax Competition, has become a genuine Dinant tradition.

This great popular gathering sees many saxophonists converging on Adolphe Sax’s birthplace (there were 1,902 of them in 2006!), and even more members of the public, in order to share the emotion in a joint concert given in the open air in the historical heart of the town. 

They also come to vibrate to the sound of thousands of notes rising from the valley of the Meuse and to shiver at the sight of scintillating saxophones pointing towards the sky.
