Thread: Baritone punchlines

  1. Baritone punchlines

    I'm making section shirts for my baritone section at school and I want it to be something fun and clever. One of our previous shirts said "we play the instrument you've never heard of!" And one had a come and take it flag with a baritone instead of a canon. Could anyone give some fun clever ideas?

    I have an old shirt that says "Euphoniums Eunite". You could play around with the "U" sound and come up with others.

  6. When you see them, instead of in lacquer or silver, but in blue, red, or purple instead: berry tones.
    Yeah, I know that is ripe, but I don't like sour notes.

    A euphonium is a baritone you spent a lot of money on.
