Comprised of Dr. Matthew Shipes’s students, the UGA Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble is a performance opportunity for graduate and undergraduate low brass students to play challenging music for their instrument while receiving class credit. The ensemble, which meets two times weekly, performs literature including serious original compositions for tuba-euphonium ensemble, transcriptions of orchestral literature, and lighter arrangements. Much of the music presents technical challenges that students may not encounter in their other performing organizations, while also offering them the opportunity to improve their sound, intonation and musicality in a homogeneous ensemble. The ensemble often features graduate students and is currently co-conducted by current studio teaching assistants Zac Al-Radiedeh, and Andrew Berry.
The group performs on campus at least once a semester and has performed around the country in conferences and seminars, including regional and international conferences hosted by the International Tuba Euphonium Association (ITEA) in Cincinnati (OH), Chattanooga (TN), Greensboro (NC), Regina (Saskatchewan) and Iowa City (IA). The ensemble will also be featured in ITEA’s first Virtual Tuba Euphonium Conference this summer.
The George Mason University Tuba and Euphonium Ensemble has been in existence for over 13 years. It draws from a diversified student population of music majors, music minors, and non-majors. They have performed at four regional conferences, and five international conferences as well as appearances on and off the local GMU campus.
The group remains as a front runner of the low brass department for recruiting students to enjoy and play chamber music and is led by GMU Adjunct Tuba Professors Dr. David Porter and Dr. Mark Jenkins.
The Moreau | VanTuinen Duo is one of the only all female percussion+low brass duos in the world. Formed in 2014, the group is comprised of Dr. Danielle Moreau (percussion) and Dr. Danielle VanTuinen (euphonium+tuba), who presently reside in Gainesville, Florida. Their primary objectives include providing educational outreach opportunities for high school programs in the Southeast United States and commissioning new repertoire. In addition to their active solo careers, the duo regularly presents at universities across North America discussing career development for 21st-century musicians and professional chamber playing. Since 2017, they have performed as featured artists at the Music by Women Festival, Southwest Regional Tuba/Euphonium Conference, the Back Cove Contemporary Festival, the University of Southern Maine, Central Michigan University, and the Asociación Española de Tubas y Bombardinos Festival in Madrid, Spain. As passionate advocates of new music, they have expanded the repertoire through commissioning projects with composers such as Adam Silverman, Shaun
Tilburg, Etienne Crausaz, Steven Snowden, and James Grant. Both members completed their doctoral work at Arizona State University; they currently serve as adjunct faculty at the University of New Hampshire and specialists at the Portland Conservatory of Music in Maine. Danielle Moreau proudly endorses Black Swamp Percussion, Innovative Percussion, and Marimba One. Danielle VanTuinen proudly endorses S.E. Shires and Eastman Winds.
