Tuba Focus Day

We’re excited to invite Tuba players of all standards to join us on Sunday 23 April for a fun-filled day of workshops, ensembles, and concerts.

Culminating in a Showcase Concert, our Tuba Focus Day aims to engage young players who are interested in experiencing a taste of life at the RNCM. And the best part of all? It’s free!

A student is playing the tuba surrounded by music stands.

Alongside our attendees, this day will feature RNCM students and world-renowned tutors, including:

Ross Knight (Principal Tuba – Orchestre de la Suisse Romande)
Brian Kingsley (Principal Tuba – Orchestra of Opera North)
Ewan Easton (Principal Tuba – Hallé Orchestra)
Robin Haggart (Principal Tuba – Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra)
Leslie Neish (International Soloist)
Pete Cowlishaw (Freelance performer and teacher)

Taking place between 9am and 5pm, sessions will be split into groups according to performance ability, from beginner to advanced (grade 8+). Activities include:

  • Concourse Music from RNCM Ensembles
  • Mass Warm-Up Session
  • Morning Break-out Ensembles (grouped by ability)
  • Lunchtime Recital – Ross Knight
  • Afternoon Break-out Ensembles (grouped by ability)
  • Showcase Concert, including the world premiere of Elephantasia for massed tuba ensemble

We would like to give a special thanks to the William and Frances Dobie Charitable Foundation for their transformational support of young brass players at the RNCM.
