About the Saxophone Studio
Saxophone students have received international recognition through various competitions, conventions, and positions in various ensembles during the last 30 years. Soloists and ensembles have regularly been victorious in competitions sponsored by the Music Teachers National Association, the Midland-Odessa Symphony (NYAC), Mu Phi Epsilon, the Alabama Symphony, the Mississippi Symphony, and other regional orchestras, in addition to the internal competitions held by the Southern Miss Symphony and Department of Bands. The Sax-Chamber Orchestra has performed for audiences at conventions of MTNA, MENC, the World Saxophone Congress, and the College Music Society, and has two CDs on the Roméo label. Graduates have performed in international cultural sites in the Rascher Saxophone Quartet, the Tetraphonics Saxophone Quartet, the US Army Field Band, and other ensembles in the military. Others hold teaching positions at colleges, universities and public and private schools across the country.
