Welcome to the website of the UWG Saxophone Symposium and Saxophone Workshop! Our Thirteenth Annual Saxophone Symposium, which will be held on February 4, 2017, offers a large saxophone group exclusively for the Symposium students, master classes, fundamentals classes, master technician Jonathan Cathell (owner, Consistent - C Winds), concerts by the UWG Saxophone Studio, UWG Saxophone Quartet, and a gala final concert featuring the Symposium Saxophone Ensemble, the Symposium Saxophone Orchestra, and the nationally acclaimed UWG Saxophone Ensemble.
