It is a pleasure for me to extend a cordial welcome to the “XIX World Saxophone Congress 2023” that will be held in the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain 6 to 10 December. On this occasion, our city has the honor of being the seat organizer of this important world event that brings together the most renowned saxophonists with fans and audiences of all parts of the world.

During 5 days, the Congress will provide the opportunity to attend concerts a program with a wide and varied music styles, world premieres, exhibitions, masterclasses and conferences. I invite students, professionals, fans of the saxophone and the general public to attend, participate and enjoy this world-class event.
