Canadian Composers?

Postby TubaJerry1 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:47 pm

(Besides Barbara York and Elizabeth Raum)

With my final university recital coming up relatively soon, I was wondering if anyone know of any good pieces by Canadian composers besides the above that I could play? I'm pretty open to whatever's out there.

Thanks, fellow tubists!

Gary Kulesha wrote a tuba concerto. You should be able to contact him via the Toronto Symphony or the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.

If you want to do an ensemble piece, Paul McIntyre wrote a four-part tuba/euph arrangement of the Huron Carol. I got a copy of this several years back through his son, Stephen. Contact information then was mcstyre (at symbol)
