Welcome to the home page for UpperCASE!

UpperCASE 2023 is the third annual saxophone ensemble that forms for the month of May to present a concert. All high school, college, and adult community members who play saxophone are invited to participate. 

Here are the details:

1) UpperCASE is an honors saxophone ensemble. We will have 5 rehearsals and a concert in Wattenbarger Auditorium in Cookeville, TN. Instrumentation will include the entire saxophone family (soprano, alto, tenor, bari, bass). REGISTRATION LINK

2) Auditions are done by VIDEO SUBMISSION. This will save valuable rehearsal time. Auditions ensure that all members will have a valuable experience and for part placement for the strongest possible ensemble. These videos are not required, but any solos and first parts will be assigned to those who submit audition materials. Video auditions are due by May 1, 2023.

3) You will need to practice your music between rehearsals - with only 5 rehearsals, we will function like a professional ensemble and retention is fundamental for our success. Need to miss a rehearsal due to something already scheduled? No worries, we can work around that, just be sure to communicate with me in advance!
