Brassy Caroling by Ed Pfueller


Sarah Wolken (upper left), a University of Missouri-Columbia senior, plays tuba during a Tuba Christmas performance yesterday outside Columbia Mall. 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 dont play often enough, Manring said. To play in an ensemble like this is unique, with other low-brass players.
