A welcome from Dr. John BleuelThe Symposium

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.

Please contact me at jbleuel@westga.edu if you have any questions about the event. We look forward to hosting you and your students on the UWG campus in 2017!

Best regards,
John Bleuel
