Weird... This guy lists that he is "Assistant Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at Ithaca College, School of Music." Maybe he's "adjunct" or "interim..."
That GVSU gig is a tough one...
I see in that thread "tubadork" (Bill) mentions that he heard that it was a one year appointment. That must be the case. Makes perfect sense.
Best of luck to all!
