Tuba-Euphonium Workshop

View Printable Program

The U.S. Army Band is proud to present our annual Tuba-Euphonium Workshop. The Workshop features concerts, recitals, exhibits, master classes, and lectures by leading low brass authorities from around the world.

The 2014 Workshop will open on Wednesday, January 29, and close Saturday, February 1. Events on all four days are free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required for the events. There is no registration fee and any tuba or euphonium player is invited to bring his/her horn for reading sessions.

Due to sequestration-related cutbacks to TDY funds for military participants, we will not be hosting the Armed Forces Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble (AFTEE) this year. We hope to be able to support AFTEE in the future.

The Workshop will take place at Brucker Hall on historic Fort Myer, Virginia. Fort Myer is located across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, and is accessible by Interstates 395 and 66 and by U.S. Route 50.
