Assembled and led by Tony Clements, this annual event brings together hundreds of tuba players (and related instruments) for a day of rehearsal and concertizing. Yvonne and Norm have played with this group twice: 2001 and 2002.
This was taken at the 2001 edition (December 1). Believe it or not, we can actually be located in this ocean of heavy metal! Find the sousaphones (left rear) and look at the right end of them. There are three "in front" and then locate the silver tuba (played by Guy Welty) seated directly in front of the left-most of the three (at the near side of the aisle), and we are seated next to him. Yvonne is playing a silver baritone and Norm, seated between Yvonne and Guy, is playing a brass euphonium.
