Festival Objectives

During its 30 consecutive years, the Festival has gained recognition as the premier event of its kind. Objectives include:

  • promoting the highest level of artistry on the euphonium and tuba;
  • encouraging young musicians to study the euphonium and tuba;
  • enhancing the repertoire for the euphonium and tuba by commissioning and encouraging original compositions, transcriptions, and arrangements;
  • presenting master classes and performances by distinguished euphonium and tuba artists; and
  • fostering increased awareness and appreciation for euphonium and tuba by the general public.

Artist and Student level competitions remain integral to the Festival. The competition has a truly international flavor, with contestants coming from countries around the world. Competition cash prizes are underwritten by foundations, companies, and friends who believe in the values of the Festival.
