    Gregson's Tuba Concerto

    The “President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band held a concert yesterday where Landres Bryant played Gregson’s Tuba Concerto (Allegro mvt). Landres is from my home town here in West Palm Beach, FL. Landres got his BA in tuba performance at Michigan and his Master’s in performance at Yale.
    About 18 years ago, when I played in the Palm Beach Garden’s Comm Band, I sat next to Fred Dart. To my right was Landres on tuba (I think Landres was a H.S. sophomore then). Great tone and I remember hearing him hitting 7 octaves of B flats warming up.

    Enjoy.

    Gotta love that face!

    I like to watch how a brass player's face (and body) moves while they play. I particularly enjoyed that this video spent so much time "watching" the soloist so that I could see all I wanted of that. A great piece of music and an enjoyable performance to watch/listen to!

    Now all I am wondering is where our friend Alex (euphonium) was during the performance. I did not see him in the ensemble when the camera pulled out to do group shots.
