The North American Saxophone Alliance is an organization made up of individuals who share a common interest in the saxophone. Members include professional performers, university professors, public school teachers, students of all levels, and others who have an interest in the saxophone. In addition to the Alliance's emphasis on disseminating information concerning the saxophone, the organization also works to provide opportunities for its members to make music, fostering fellowship among saxophone enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds.
The North American Saxophone Alliance is aligned with similar national organizations throughout the world. Alliance members have the opportunity to participate in the World Saxophone Congress, an international convention held every three years. In addition, the Alliance sponsors conferences each year, including national and regional conferences throughout the United States and Canada. Through these meetings, the organization promotes the composition of new music, the sharing of ideas, and the performance of saxophone music, particularly by younger players.
