    Now I've heard Walter play concert Eb5 at a performance of the Westchester Band. And he told me that yes, he doubles tuba. He also says "hi" to Rick.

    Cool! Please tell Walt 'hi' back. We got together at his house maybe 13 or 14 years ago to play some duets when my youngest son was still working at IBM (Thomas J. Watson Research Ctr). I was impressed with Walt's playing. I think I had only been back to playing for a couple of years then. Walt even played the didgeridoo briefly to demonstrate how 'multi-phonics' work.

    Will do, Rick. He told me you played his euphonium and he played his bass trumpet for the duets.
