Uproar - Education
This seasons is the first season of Uproar Education. Uproar will be presenting two events this year.
Uproar @ School
Uproar @ School is a collaboration between saxophonist Andrew Harrison, numerous high school and college band programs, and composer Chris Ozley. The goal of this program is pair students with a professional performer, so they can see how a professional prepares and sounds first hand, in hopes to encourage students to continue playing and consuming music after high school. This year, Dr. Ozley will be writing a new saxophone concerto that will be premiere by over 10 schools next season!
Uproar Festival and Competition
In April 2020, Uproar will be presenting the Uproar Festival and Competition at Mt. San Antonio College in Pomona California. The day will feature numerous performances by local saxophonist, including Dr. Harrison, and alumni from Mt. SAC. The second half of the festival will feature a saxophone quartet competition for high school saxophone quartets in the Southern California area. Winners will receive a cash prize provided by Eastman Winds, who will be sponsoring the event. More details will be announced soon.
