TubaFest 2009

When I was looking for things to do in Fredericton, their tourist website helpfully suggested TubaFest. Turned out that after two days of workshops and masterclasses, TubaFest had a concert the day I arrived in Fredericton. That was too unusual to pass up, so I scurried back to the university after I'd grabbed dinner downtown yesterday. And it was totally worth it. I think the neatest part for me was hearing them do a movement from one of the Holst military band suites which I know and love... with nothing but tubas and euphoniums. A whole stage full of them!

Here's a photo from one of the smaller ensembles, showing some of the different shapes of tubas:

Definitely a surprisingly little treat to start off my trip!
