About this Event

Join Susan Bradley as she travels to the beginning of tuba history, following its development from the snaky serpent, through the sad tale of the short-lived ophicleide, taking a side trip to the Italian cousin, the cimbasso, and culminating in the modern tuba. She bravely confronts the loneliness of the solo tuba player in an exploration of music for unaccompanied tuba, featuring composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Barton Cummings, Malcolm Arnold, Lachlan Davidson, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, Lennon-McCartney, Don Stratton, Arthur Sullivan, and even Richard the Lionheart.

The Musica Viva Sessions format invites presenters to think creatively about the venue and pre- and post-concert experience for audiences. The format is simple: a drink on arrival, a 60-minute concert featuring works the musicians love to talk about, followed by an opportunity for audiences to have a post-concert drink while they mix and mingle with the artists.
