Octubatour coming up!

Date: 21/10/2015

Exactly 10 years since I played my first recital at Moores School of music in Houston, Texas, I’ll be back Oct 27. Here is a recording from the last concert:
Oct 29 I’ll be playing again with the fabulous Houston Symphonic Band. This time we will do a US premiere of the wind band version of my own tuba concerto. Of course we also have a couple of extra treats for the audience!
Oct 30 I will be heading for Edinburg, TX for a master class/recital at UT Pan American.
After a week of concerts with Toronto Symphony I head down to Washington, DC to team up with contra bassoonist Lewis Lipnick of the National Symphony Orchestra. We are world premiering a new duet, Low Low Tango, for contra forte and tuba by Argentinian composer Noelia Escalzo. In addition to a recital, I have made time for a master class in DC.

Fnugg Red on Hong Kong "national" TV. Ben Pierce and I was interviewed and played a world premiere of the duet version of Fnugg Red last week. Much fun!

Last week’s Asia Tuba Euphonium Festival at the Chinese University of Hong Kong featured around 50 players from Norway, the United States, Korea, Japan, Thailand and Taiwan. While they were here, tuba players, Øystein Baadsvik from Norway and Benjamin Pierce from the United States came in to talk to fellow brass musician, Ben Pelletier.

The bell of the tuba fell off (!) while I walked off the stage in Canada yesterday. In front of a horrified audience I chased the bell as it bounced over the stage. I managed to grab it just before it rolled over the stage edge. Incredibly there was no damage to it. Not even a small dent. Solid german quality from Miraphone!
Backstage, my friend Lance Nagel immediately awarded me the No-bell prize 😂
Must remember to tighten those screws next time...
