The Birmingham- based National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain scored a success with their first visit to the Edinburgh Fringe, steadily building audiences to capacity during their tenshow residency at the 300-seat Reid Hall.
A surprise word-of-mouth hit, by the day of the final show the 40-strong ensemble had reached number one in the new audience text vote system published daily by The Scotsman.
Comments in the audience guest book included "the best thing I've seen on the Fringe", " absolutely mind-busting" and "saxophones are why ears were invented!"
Musical director and soloist Nigel Wood was in buoyant mood after the final show: "This is our first time at the Fringe and we are amazed and delighted by the reaction of audiences. If only we were staying another week!"
The choir draws its members from all over the country, and meets in Birmingham to rehearse.
