    Hi

    I'm looking for a Tuba section feature item for a 3rd section standard band. Suggestions welcome. Thanks.

    You could try this written as a duet but could work for a section too.

    Was going to suggest Tea for Tubas, the Simon Kerwin version, ................... again interchangeable parts!! Who really did this arrangement first?
    the duet parts are a little tricky but 3 rd section guys should crack it.

    My apologies to Simon if he wrote his first - I had know idea there was a version already existing - not that I expect the 2 to be similar.
    My version was actually written a couple of years ago but only recently approved for publication.
    I must get a listen to compare....

    The Kerwin arrangement switches from a jaunty 12/8 compound rythm to a quirky jazz waltz, a couple of challenging , yet entertaining moments in the cadenza.
    All in all a cracking arrangement. ( also with akternative euph part(s) )

    Have a look at Bassically Baroque - 4 basses and band, listed under the "Solos etc" section in the catalogue at this web address: http://www.croftmusic.co.uk/Catalogue/Catalogue.html
    You can view the PDF score and download score and parts directly from the site. I hope you find it of interest!

    I could try composing one for you if you'd like?
    Message me if so :)

    I think Peter Graham did a light arrangment of the Elephant for Tuba section. Utter Cheese but good fun....

    It's probably not worth mentioning William Rimmer's "The Merry Men".....
