helpful tips and suggestions from area directors, spotlights on area college and
university band programs, calendars of upcoming events, advocacy articles

Organized by Angelo Manzo, MU assistant professor of tuba and euphonium, the
event invited all who are proficient in tuba, euphonium, helicon or similar
instruments to play Christmas carols. Musicians included Marvin Manring of
Stockton (upper right), transporting his tuba in a shopping cart after the
event. “I don’t play often enough,” Manring said. “To play in an ensemble like
this is unique, with other low-brass players.”
