Organised every summer since 1997 by Nova Gorica Arts Centre at Nova Gorica Music School, the International Saxophone Meeting is the annual gathering point for young saxophone players from Slovenia and abroad. It is in part a festival and partly a series of master classes with eminent mentors. Participants can choose between classical repertoire, jazz or a combination of both. It is led by its Art Director Matjaž Drevenšek and co-organised by the Nova Gorica Music School and the Saksofonija Music Society

The programme provides the opportunity to work in saxophone ensembles through individual lessons, rehearsals with the piano, concerts and lessons given by international instructors. It culminates in a festival of final concerts by workshop participants. The schedules are modular and adjusted according to the number and interests of the participants.

Each third year the festival also hosts an important international saxophone competition.
