The 35th Annual New England Saxophone Symposium, hosted at the University of Massachusetts, will be held this year on March 24th and 25th, 2017.
The event, in its third year hosted by classical saxophone professor Jonathan Hulting-Cohen and jazz saxophone professor Felipe Salles, will be our largest to date. The symposium will offer clinics, showcases for both high school and college musicians, and performances that will appeal to saxophone players of all levels of ability and interests. Jazz and Classical high school solo competitions will be offered this year with prizes including: $600 in gift certificates to Gerry’s Music, pro gear from our corporate sponsors, and opening for this year’s guest artists Arno Bornkamp and Steve Wilson. Undergraduate and Graduate musicians can also enter the college showcase; we encourage diverse styles of music.
The event is open to all saxophone enthusiasts; we hope to see you there!
