Thank you to all of our 2022 participants!
HUSC at a Glance
Established in 2008, HUSC has grown to be the country's largest competition of its kind. In 2018, we featured over 32 quartets and 65 soloists. Our numbers have only grown since.
Every year, our judging panel is made up of the country's top university and collegiate saxophone professors. Each judge provides performers with personalized feedback.
Our exhibition hall features the industry's top manufacturers and distributers including Yamaha, D'addario, Vandoren, Selmer and Jody Jazz.
Contestants compete for hundreds of dollars in cash prices and equipment provided by our sponsors. In 2022 we gave away $1500 in prizes and 8 mouthpieces as giveaways!
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak of 2020, HUSC introduced a virtual, solo only, competition that allowed students to participate from home (2020 & 2021).
