Semester Review Fall 2013

This semester has been especially active for the GVSU Tuba/Euphonium studio. We put on the 2nd annual Octubafest, which was a four night concert series this year. The first three nights featured every student as a soloist, and the final night featured several in small ensemble performances including a freshman tuba quartet, the Glass Euphonium Quartet, the Bassment Boys, and Brass Action Quintet.

This semester we also welcomed Demondrae Thurman, international virtuoso euphonist and professor at Samford University, for a master class. He worked with each euphonist and offered insight ranging from technical improvement to music analysis to dealing with nerves.

We are anticipating next semester, which will bring more improvement and several senior recitals.
