Past NASA Conferences
In the alternating years that NASA does not have its Biennial Conference, each region hosts its own Regional Conference.
If you are interested in sponsoring the Regional Conferences at the national level, please work in conjunction with NASA's Marketing Director, . For local sponsorship, you may work directly with your Conference Host.
The origins of the North American Saxophone Alliance date from the First World Saxophone Congress, held in Chicago in December of 1969. Following the lead of our colleagues in France, who created the Association of French Saxophonists in 1971, the North American Saxophone Alliance was established in 1976 under the leadership of Frederick Hemke. Since then, NASA has offered state, regional, and international conferences attracting many important saxophonists to present performances, lectures and master classes. NASA is the largest organization in the western hemisphere dedicated to the establishment of the saxophone as a medium of serious musical expression.
