Andrew Stine
Andrew Stine, 2024 National Collegiate Solo Competition Winner

Saxophonist Andrew Stine hails from Madison, Wisconsin, where he grew up in a very musical family. Dedicated to dual fluidity as both a classical soloist and chamber musician as well as a jazz artist, Stine is currently pursuing Bachelor of Music degrees in both Saxophone Performance and Jazz and Studio Music at the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music at the University of Memphis. While a collegiate student, Stine has performed with the Southern Comfort Jazz Orchestra and the Wind Ensemble - the flagship performing instrumental ensembles at the School of Music - as well as with the Highland Quartet, which advanced to the live semi-final round of the 2024 North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition. In 2023 he was the first ever saxophonist to be awarded First Prize in the Beethoven Club Young Artist Competition in Memphis, was awarded the prestigious Presser Scholar Award through the School of Music, and later that year was named winner of the University of Memphis Soloist Competition. As a high schooler he performed with the award-winning Middleton High School 7 O’Clock Jazz Ensemble on tours of Japan and at the famed Essentially Ellington Competition at Lincoln Center in New York City, where he won an Outstanding Soloist Award.

In addition to his scholastic pursuits, Stine has established himself as a first call professional musician in the robust Memphis music scene. He has performed regularly with the Memphis Jazz Orchestra in their weekly residency at Alfred’s on Beale Street, in musical theater productions at Playhouse on the Square, and with Natchez - a famed Memphis rock and soul cover band - at Neil’s Music Room. He is currently the applied saxophone instructor at Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, which was established in 1872 and is the oldest high school band in America. 

Stine has performed in masterclasses with saxophonists including Steven Banks, Nathan Nabb, Timothy McAllister, and Taimur Sullivan. His primary teachers include Zach Shemon, Adam Larson, and Michael Shults. 

In his spare time, Stine enjoys following his beloved Milwaukee Bucks and Green Bay Packers, and indulging in Uncle Lou’s Fried Chicken.
