The University of Kentucky
The University of Kentucky tuba-euphonium studio is led by Dr. Skip Grey. They have a strong tuba-euphonium ensemble tradition at their school. Within the large ensemble, a group of eight students breaks away and forms the Conner Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble. This group performed at the United States Army Band Tuba-Euphonium Conference in Washington, DC. The live performed was recorded and is available on CD!
I really like Dr. Grey's information about the tuba-euphonium ensemble. It's very true! He says that many people think of a massive group of pachyderms. He aims to have new works written for tuba-euphonium ensemble as well as artistic transcriptions. Kudos to Kentucky!
