Vici Zelinsky got me started as a tuba teacher when I retired from school teaching, and she has kept on playing.
Andrew Hook is just finishing high school and heading for Carnegie Mellon.
The old guy is me.

I'm posting this photo because I thought the picture was pretty cool. One of our bass players took this photo. This is the Oklahoma City Philharmonic during a pops concert last season. From the top down, me (Ted Cox, one of my Alexander tubas) Noel Seals, Irv Wagner, John Allen, Karl Sievers, Jay Wilkinson, and Michael Anderson.

Here's a cool shot from the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra's John Williams concert last season... Trombones left to right are Jason Byerlotzer, Mike Maier, and Jared Lantzy (bass), and I'm playing my Yamaha YFB-821:

Taken at the Paulding County Fine Arts Festival (11 Oct) with the Dixie Saints, one of the groups that "allows" me to play with them.

A statistical anomaly. The low tubas in the Oregon Tuba Ensemble for a recent concert to help the Eugene Concert Choir celebrate their 40th Anniversary Christmas Concert. From right, Susan Daily, Emily Barron, Ally House and Georgia Rennie. First time I can recall that the entire low tuba section was women. Horns are a YBB 301, a St. Pete, a VMI 201 and an Eastman.

Interesting receiver and slim valve buttons on the euphonium.

Please tell about these.
