ISSAC Competitors


Amy Griffiths, ISSAC Director and everyone involved in ISSAC 2014 wish to thank each of the Screening Round applicants. Your support and interest are essential for events such as ISSAC and we encourage you to apply again at ISSAC 2016.

Please remember that your Screening Round fee covers attendance to all of the 2014 ISSAC events, so we hope to see you in October.

ISSAC's competition judges have evaluated all of the Screening Round recordings and have selected forty saxophonists to advance to the live Preliminary Round which will be held in Columbus, Georgia, USA on October 23-24, 2014.

The Preliminary Round will determine the twelve competitors who will perform in the Semi-Final Round on Saturday, October 25th. Six competitors will then be chosen to perform in the Final Round on Sunday, October 26th.

Congratulations to each of the forty competitors who have advanced to the live Preliminary Round!
