CASSGB would like to announce a competition for composers to submit a piece for unaccompanied saxophone. The winning composition will be used as a set piece for the forthcoming CASSGB Young Saxophone Soloist Competition.

The piece should be written for solo unaccompanied saxophone and aimed at Grade 8 level players. It can be written in any style or genre and should last around two minutes. The whole piece must also fit on two A4 pages, as the winning entry will be reproduced in the centre pages of a future issue of Clarinet & Saxophone.

The competition is open to UK nationals or non-UK citizens resident in the UK, and is open to students and non-students. Both members and non-members of CASSGB are welcome to apply. There is no entry fee.

Music submitted for the competition should not currently be published in online or in print.

The composition should be submitted using computer notation software and submitted as a PDF file. Entrants should also complete an application form.

Any queries, as well as completed application forms and compositions, should be emailed to [email protected]
