Joel Diegert is an internationally active saxophonist with a wide range of musical interests. He has achieved international success as a founding member of FIVE SAX, performing an entertaining show that combines musical performance with humor and theatrical elements. Concurrently Joel's interest in contemporary music led him to pursue his doctoral research on the topic "Extending the Saxophone via Live Electronics."

Joel was winner of the 2005 NASA classical competition, prize-winner of the 2011 Jean-Marie Londeix Competition, and prize-winner of 2011 Gaudeamus Competition. He has performed with internationally-renowned ensembles, such as Musikfabrik (Cologne), Phace (Vienna), and the Vienna Saxophonic Orchestra.  

Joel's studies brought him from the US to France and Austria, and his primary saxophone teachers were Lars Mlekusch, Vincent David, Jean-Michel Goury, John Sampen, Steven Mauk and April Lucas. Joel holds the position of visiting professor of saxophone at West Virginia University for the 2017-18 academic year.
