Music

I play the euphonium (pictured at right) primarily with the Los Angeles Pierce Symphonic Winds, but I have also played with other groups including the San Fernando Valley Orchesta, 99 Tubas, and other small ensembles.

As principal euphonium, I am responsible for playing the solos written for the Euphonium. I have performed the following works from the standard concert band repertoire

  • Festive Overture - Shostakovich
  • First Suite in Eb for Military Band - Holst
  • Lincolnshire Posy - Grainger
  • Overture, Le Carnaval Romain. (The Roman Carnival) - Berlioz
  • Pineapple Poll: Suite from the Ballet - Sullivan
  • The Planets - Holst
  • The Planets (Orchestra) - Holst
  • Second Suite in F for Military Band - Holst
  • When Jesus Wept - Schumann


I played the first part (bottom-right of the picture) as a member of the 99 Tubas. The ensemble performed two pieces for Tommy Johnson's Tribute Concert: Fanfare for a Big Man, and Finale from Tchickofsky's 4th Symphony. Jim Self composed the first piece and arranged the second for 6-part Tuba ensemble.
