HD8 is based in Huddersfield and mainly features a double quartet line-up with two of each saxophone from soprano to baritone, although some players play more than one saxophone in the ensemble. HD8 plays a wide range of music from Baroque and classical to contemporary, jazz, Latin, pop and world music, including original works for saxophone octet and arrangements made especially by and for the group.
HD8 performs in the Yorkshire region, often sharing the concert with a choir and including some specially adapted joint items as well as individual repertoire. All members are trained musicians, many of whom are graduates from the University of Huddersfield.
HD8 saxophone octet is available for concerts and events, so please get in touch via the Contact page if you are interested in making a booking.
