Top Brass

Written by Fuse Staff


This past June, hundreds of low brass enthusiasts traveled to the 2012 International Tuba and Euphonium Conference in Linz, Austria, for a week of competitions, clinics, classes, and seminars. Among the hundreds there were four Ithaca College students.

Michael Horsford, M.M. ’13, competed in the Artist Solo Tuba division, Peter Best-Hall ’15 competed in the Young Artist Euphonium solo competition, and Bill Connors ’13 and Eric Hoang, M.M. ’13, competed in the Arnold Jacobs Mock Orchestral Tuba competition.

IC alumni were also on hand to showcase their talent. Mike Vecchio ’08 competed in the Artist Euphonium solo competition, and Christian Carichner ’05 and Aaron Rivkin ’09 gave solo recitals as well. Carichner performed two pieces by Tyler Oglivie ’05.

Aaron Tindall, assistant professor of tuba and euphonium, gave a full solo recital and performed the world premiere of IC composition professor and composer Dana Wilson's new Concerto for Tuba.
