|Soprillo notes:||I am a saxophonist and am a saxophone teacher of the Sapporo saxophone school "SaxTherapy".|
I play Saxophones such as tenor, alto, soprano, sopranino, soprillo with all music genres. In addition, I am a A member (expert) of "The Japan Saxophonist Association". I want to aim at the repertory expansion of the soprillo music from now on.
|Soprillo notes:||I play soprillo in the Yorkshire Saxophone Choir. We are a 12-piece 'chamber-style' ensemble who range from soprillo to bass. Members own and maintain their own instruments. Our repertoire is very varied and we have several pieces either composed or arranged especially for us. We regularly feature soprillo solo passages.|

|Soprillo notes:||I am mostly a low woodwind player and play some low winds from Benedikt Eppelsheim. But sometimes I also use the soprillo...|
For my solo CD "Windscapes" I could do some of the first recordings on soprillo - a great contrast to the low sounds!
|Audio clips:|| Vivaldi 1.wmv|
|Soprillo notes:||Sibbele plays with the unique Saxophone Orchestra, conducted by its founder Karl Veen, has thirteen members playing almost every type of saxophone.|
The orchestra had a promotional function for the School of Arts and Music "de Meldij" in Drachten (Nl) and dates back to 1990. In 2000 the orchestra continue independently. Most players are former students of the School of Music, aided by some professionals and a single sax-addict.
