June 28 - July 3, 2020
The weeklong Stetson University Saxophone Workshop focuses on the fundamental principles of saxophone performance and includes an emphasis on playing techniques and performance practices. Students participate in large ensembles, chamber groups, masterclasses, nightly jazz classes and more. All participants audition and play in a saxophone band and in a chamber ensemble beginning on the first day of the workshop. Eligible students may receive a private lesson from one of the faculty and are eligible to audition to perform a solo during the young artists' concert on Thursday evening. All students perform during Friday evening's chamber music concert. The final concert Saturday morning includes performances of the two saxophone bands.
The Saxophone Workshop is open to saxophonists entering grades 7 through 12.
The 2020 Welcome Packet and audition requirements will be available at the end of spring. In the meantime, the 2019 workshop documents will remain available for review.
