Southeast Tuba Euphonium Workshop 2015

The Southeast Tuba Euphonium Workshop (STEW) is an opportunity for college- aged students to study in an intensive week of lessons, master classes and chamber music with four leading teachers of the euphonium and tuba. Students enrolled in the seminar will each have two one-hour lessons with a faculty member, play in a master class setting and perform in a tuba euphonium quartet. Evening performances will consist of a solo recital by each of the faculty, a faculty quartet concert and chamber music performances by seminar quartets.
