Iowa Saxophonists' Workshop is directed by Dr. Kenneth Tse and involves select students from the saxophone studio playing sopranino through bass saxophones. The ensemble performs music of a variety of styles and difficulties and at times accompanies guest soloists. A public concert is given at the end of each school year. Besides local performances, the ensemble has also been featured at various regional and national conferences such as the Iowa Bandmasters Conference, North American Saxophone Alliance National Conference and the Midwest Clinic. The members are also veterans in solo and chamber music and have garnered national recognition through competitions and performances. In 2010, members of this ensemble won top three awards at North American Saxophone Alliance Classical Solo and Chamber Music Competitions, the national winner title of the MTNA Chamber Music Competition, and Silver Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. In summer of 2016, the ensemble embarked on its first Asian concert tour to Hong Kong and Chengdu.
