Battle of the Saxes
Brass / Parades
After the huge success of Battle of the Bones CubaDupa 2017 is striving for 100 saxophonists to prove who is the better sax! The NZ Society of Saxophones are recreating a true, famous, competitive battle event from Paris in 1840 (incidentally the same year as the ship Cuba arrived in Wellington!). The aim of this battle was to see if a military band WITH sax was better than a military band WITHOUT! This newly commissioned work by Oscar Laren (Wellington Shake ‘Em on Downers) has the two adversaries move from each end of Cuba St. Let the sax battles commence!
