Houli—the original “hometown” for Taiwan’s saxophone production—remains a key global hub for the manufacture of musical instruments.  In recent years, cultural and creative industry concepts have been adopted towards the goals of promoting Houli’s instrument-making industry and boosting local businesses.  The vision for this competition is to provide a venue for musicians from around the world to share experiences and exchange information with each other in order to broaden the horizons of Taiwan’s musicians and music scene, promote jazz music and instruments, and attract local and international recognition, thereby maximizing the synergistic impact of this event.

 

Competition Format:
Jazz saxophone performance: All contestants will be accompanied by a trio jazz ensemble (drums/bass/piano) provided by the organizer, and are not allowed to bring their own ensemble.

 

Competition Order:
The order of contestants in the semi-final round will be determined by lots.  Results will be posted on the official website one week before the competition. The order of contestants in the final round will be decided in an open, fair drawing by the contestants (or by the organizer if a contestant is absent).
