I'm surprised that list doesn't include some of the "standards" that involve two tubas:

Zarathustra
Alpine Symphony
Rite of Spring
Symphonie Fantastique

Aren't those pretty standard rep asked for tuba auditions?

Nevermind. I understand what you meant... (duh...)

Maybe the principal tubist would like to take a day off now and then.

Look guys, almost every orchestra has auditions for these sort of sub. positions - orchestras with considerably smaller budgets than Louisville.

and of course this

Maybe the principal tubist would like to take a day off now and then.


(along with - unfortunately - the occasional flu bug)

is the reason for an approved sub. list.

Hey zeus, the reason there is an audition is because acording to our contract every three years there must be an audition for auxillary (sub) list. This way our personnel manager has an up-to-date list for each instrument. In this particular orchestra each musician is given one week paid vacation and x number of personal days. In my absence it is very nice to have someone that plays well, thus auditions are in order to qualify a sub/auxillary.

Nothing at all odd about that.

Good to see you Daryl.
