Directed by Andy Schanz, the Oregon Tuba Ensemble, based in Eugene, OR, performs throughout the central I-5 corridor area. We were honored to be invited to join them on December 15, 2007, for their annual Winter performance at The John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts in Eugene. Yvonne sat in with the second euphonium section using our Gerhard Baier instrument, Norm coupled with Dean Huston on third (high) tuba using Dean's Mirafone 184 model. (There are four parts in the group: first euphonium, second euphonium, third tuba, fourth tuba.)
This photo shows Yvonne and Norman in "official" OTE uniform shirts holding the instruments we played.
Here is the group playing. Yvonne is third from the left (between hats) in the front row. Norm is second from the right (also between hats) in the back row.
