Octubafest 2013 was the best attended Octubafest ever! On October 29th, the recital hall was filled with the sounds of student quartets and solos that ranged from beautiful melodies to insanely crazy virtuosic playing! October 31st saw our annual “Octubaween” event. In attendance was the President of UCA, Tom Courtway! It was a great night of quartet and solo performances, along with some skits that had the audience howling with laughter! See you next year!
Octubafest 2012! There are two events at this year’s festival. On October 18th, 2012 come to Snow Fine Arts to hear Dalton Shaffer, Euphonium and Mary Cowperthwait, Tuba perform in preparation for their upcoming competition for MTNA. On October 31st, join us in the brand-new UCA Amphitheater for what promises to be a hysterical night of costumes, candy, solo performances, and the first concert of the year for the Tuba-Euphonium Krewe.
Octubafest 2011 was a huge success! With Guest Artist Dr. Matthew Tropman from the University of the Pacific, students celebrated the tuba and euphonium in many ways! Monday Octuba 24th was our annual Tuba Euphonium Krewe performance and was augmented with three different student quartet performances and had a special guest appearance by the UCA Bear Bones. Wednesday Octuba 26th and Friday Octuba 28th were filled with student solo performances in which every student in the studio performed a solo with piano (some for the first time in their lives).
