Sae Ono, Saxophonist


Sae Ono, born in Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture of Japan, in 1993, is a saxophonist. After exploring classical, jazz, and contemporary music genres at Nagoya College of Music, she pursued further studies in France. During her time in France, she earned the “Diplôme d’Étude Musicale” of Saxophone and Formation Musicale qualifications from the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Saint-Maur-des-Fossés.

Returning to Japan in 2019, she embarked on various endeavors, including mentoring aspiring saxophonists and providing musical instruction in elementary school extracurricular activities. 
Starting in 2022, she took on the role of a guest musician of the Kariya City Orchestra, playing saxophone solos in compositions such as Bizet’s “L’Arlésienne Suite No. 1 & 2,” Ravel’s “Boléro,” and Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

She is also a member of the saxophone ensemble “Petite Forêt,” where she not only performs but also contributes to arrangements, selections of program, and music explanations.

In 2023, Sae Ono established the Saxophone Quartet “Relâche,” assuming a leadership role within the group. Her focus centers on infusing jazz and popular music expressions into the saxophone quartet’s performances.

A member of the “Booobibibiiibibiduo,” initiated in 2016 with fellow saxophonist Nana Imamura, Sae Ono explores the dimensions of popular music through innovative loop effects.
