Comprised of Professor David Zerkel's students, the UGA Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble is a performance opportunity for graduate and undergraduate low brass students to play challenging music for their instrument while receiving class credit. The ensemble, which meets three times weekly, performs literature including serious original compositions for tuba ensemble, transcriptions of orchestral literature, and lighter arrangements. Much of the music presents technical challenges that students may not encounter in their other performing organizations.
The group performs on campus at least once a semester and has performed around the country in conferences and seminars, including regional and International Tuba Euphonium Conferences in Cincinnati (OH), Chattanooga (TN), Greensboro (NC), and Regina (Saskatchewan). The group is also frequently invited to perform at the Army Band Tuba Euphonium Conference in Washington, DC.
