Make music, not war

    "Pax Sax"   

You. That's you, in the first place. Although someone came up with the initial idea, this project is not possible without your help.

 

On November 11, 2018 we closed the 4 year anniversary of the Great War. Now it's time, not to forget, but to clean up. Let us together "beat weapons into plowshares", or rather: into "saxophones".

 

Share this message, donate your artillery shells, hang up a poster, reserve one of the 193 "Pax Sax" saxophones, ...

Be part of this Sax4Pax "movement".

Karel Goetghebeur.

 

He is the driving force and manager of the Belgian saxophone brand Adolphe Sax & Cie. In 2014 Karel came up with the idea to melt artillery shells into saxophones.

 

After a long journey with a lot of obstacles, he was finally able to officially announce the Sax4Pax project on November, 8th 2018.

Raphael Ravenscroft, saxophonist.

 

He became world famous with the saxophone solo from "Baker Street" by Gerry Rafferty. Raphael came to Bruges in 2014 to visit Adolphe Sax & Cie. His view on the Sax4Pax project was of crucial importance.

 

4 days before they would announce the collaboration, Raphael died unexpectedly.
