    "Station 11" on HBO

    A few minutes into the second episode of the post apocalyptic series "Station Eleven" on HBO comes a small parade by a traveling Shakespearean troupe led by a person with an old three valve silver euphonium. There's a nice closeup shot as the Euphonium leads the way.

    I posted a screenshot on my FB because the CC says "Tuba Playing" and we very well know it's a bloody Euphonium!

    Let's all remain calm. Everyone knows that "euphonium" is just a pretentious name for a tenor tuba, as "flugelhorn" is a pretentious name for "soprano tuba"; and denying this is not a healthy approach to life. This fact continues to be widely recognized by the public -- as in the case of Goodwill Industries on shopgoodwill.com where virtually every used instrument they sell that is brass, valved, and is held with the bell at the top is listed as a "tuba". Ebay often follows suit. Besides, "euphonium" is harder to spell, and how are the Germans supposed to pronounce it -- "oy-phonium"? Whose idea was it to call these little tubas "euphoniums"? It looks like a marketing gimmick, or a desperate plea for attention.

    But take heart! Things are changing. I note that today Goodwill has managed to classify two baritones as "baritone"!
