Taichung Sax Competition 2014

I am staying in Taichung Taiwan for 5 days to perform during the Taichung Saxophone Competition, an event sponsored by both the city government of Taichung Taiwan and many saxophone manufacturers based in Taiwan. It is a jazz style competition. There are prizes for the top 3 contestants, including usd currency , a saxophone and a visit to a local saxophone manufacturer. After performing today Wednesday the songs airegin (sonny rollins), and body and soul (johnny green) I was accepted into the final round of top 10 saxophonists to perform on Friday. During this round we must play 3 songs and perform on a saxophone which was manufactured in Taiwan. We will choose our saxophone thursday morning. There are 7 saxophone manufacturers to choose from. We are accompanied by a local band of musicians playing drums acoustic bass and acoustic piano. The contestants could be any adult age and was open to any country. This is such a unique opportunity and as I continue employment at the Venetian Macao I am grateful for the chance to take time off and attend this contest.
