Ensemble Bio: Directed by Geoffrey Deibel and conducted by Keith Dodson, the FSU Saxophone Orchestra consists of students in the FSU saxophone studio. Playing saxophone voices ranging from soprano to bass, the ensemble performs a diverse repertoire of both transcriptions and original music for the saxophone. Students from the FSU Saxophone Studio have won numerous national and international solo and chamber music competitions - including first place in the 1999 and 2007 MTNA Young Artist Chamber Music Competitions, and first prizes at the 2019 NASA Region VI Conference Competitions. Three former students are currently members of the internationally renowned Raschèr Saxophone Quartet. The group is also active in the commissioning of new works for large ensemble.
