Houston Underground is the largest - and most awesome - amateur saxophone competition for high school and junior high students in the country. Since 2008, Houston Underground has been a platform for student musicians to refine their art, broadcast their skills, collaborate with other players, and explore new repertoire, all in an exciting and fun environment. Supported by top saxophone companies and frequented by some of the best professional players in the country, we strive to be a defining and supportive event in the development of hundreds of young musicians.
