Special Guests: EUBA

Euba is a rarity in the Canadian chamber music world. As one of the only tuba quartets in the country, they offer something completely different from more standard ensembles. Euba plays a wide variety of repertoire including contemporary compositions and classical favourites adapted to fit their instrumentation. Their engaging performances include interesting and informative dialogue about their unique instruments and some of the music they play.
The musicians at the back of the orchestra provide the foundation for the ensemble, playing a supporting role that usually doesn’t attract much notice. Euba brings these talented musicians out from the back of the ensemble and into the spotlight. Audiences who have never heard low brass out of the normal setting are often surprised by just how melodic tubas can be. Their musicality and rich full sound truly make these instruments sing.
