The Alto saxophone SECTION

Altos Block M_2.png


The alto section is comprised of 23 members with 12 performance block spots. Three rank leaders and one section leader make up the student leaders of the alto section.

As a member of the alto section, this "family" will provide a valuable support system throughout your college career, helping you adjust to life in Ann Arbor and create life-long friendships.

My favorite thing about my section is that we’re a family. No matter what we always look out for each other. I have met some of my best friends in the alto section, and they have definitely positively impacted my college experience and my life.

I love how close and supportive everyone in the section is. We take care of each other, and no one feels left out or excluded.
