Michael Brecker International Saxophone Competition

Michael Brecker International Saxophone Competition

This article was posted on 21 Feb 2019.

The legacy of tenor saxophonist and 15-time Grammy winner Michael Brecker is a marvel. As a result of his stylistic and harmonic innovations, Michael will forever be regarded as one of the most eminent saxophonists of this or any generation. He loved the company of musicians and especially aspiring young saxophonists. He would listen to the unsolicited tapes he received and would return with feedback and would always take time to speak to young musicians following his gigs. In his characteristically humble way, Michael had an uncanny ability to make everyone feel special. In recognition of Michael's generosity, and to assist in providing ballast to deserving careers, The Michael Brecker International Saxophone Competition (MBISC) was created.

The competition is open to unsigned saxophonists, age 16-30. It's our hope to further the exposure for deserving, young saxophonists. Finalists will perform at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat, Israel, and the top three winners will receive a substantial cash prize! Applications are now being accepted.
