Welcome to the home page for UpperCASE!

UpperCASE 2022 is ready to launch. In our second year, we have some excited changes and growth for the ensemble. First, thanks to the support of the Cookeville Arts Council, we were able to commission a new work by composer Grace Baugher Dunlap, which we will premiere at our concert on May 22.

Here are the details:

1) UpperCASE is an honors high school saxophone ensemble. We will have 6 rehearsals and a concert in Dogwood Park in Cookeville, TN. Instrumentation will include the entire saxophone family (soprano, alto, tenor, bari, bass). Register Here

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. Audition Music Here

3) You will need to practice your music between rehearsals - with only 6 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!
