Tuba & Euphonium Day at Paige’s Music

As the low brass specialist here at Paige’s Music, I couldn’t be more excited to present our first annual Tuba & Euphonium Day on Saturday, March 12 – sponsored by Eastman/Shires.

For our first event of this kind, we’re going big. Not only will we have a huge variety of professional Eastman tubas and S.E. Shires euphoniums (perhaps the best selection of Shires euphoniums in the country, currently) available for testing and purchase – we are thrilled to welcome two of the world’s finest low brass musicians as special guest clinicians: Chris Olka, principal tuba with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Hiram Diaz, euphonium player with “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band!
