The University of Central Arkansas has a thriving Tuba and Euphonium Studio. Students take part in group warm up sessions at 7 am, weekly individual lessons and group lessons, masterclasses, and our tuba-euph ensemble known as the “Tuba Euphonium Krewe”. Each year, the UCA Tuba Euphonium Studio hosts Octubafest, a series of concerts featuring the TEK and students performing solo works as well as hosting a highly-acclaimed guest artist. The studio also hosts Conway TubaChristmas, often in conjunction with the Conway Symphony Orchestra. Arkansas Tuba Euphonium Day, sponsored by the UCA Tuba Euphonium Krewe and the UCA Student Government Association, is the largest gathering of Tuba and Euphonium players in the state! In 2010, the first year of the event, over 85 tuba and euphonium players descended upon the UCA campus to take part in a day filled with masterclasses, clinics, recitals, and performances.
