Ben Zefkeles - Section Leader
We are the Tubas!
Not only do we want to provide our band with a solid foundation of sound, but we also work to build friendships that will last long after your time in this band. Other than working hard in rehearsals we often hang out as a section. In the past we have gone to dinner, seen a movie, played mini-golf, or just hung out at somebody's house. These hangouts are always a blast and something you don't want to miss out on!
One of the coolest things about our section is our fan base. During football games or just any time around campus, if people see one of us with a tuba somebody will begin the obligatory "Tuba" chant and the playing of one of our signature tunes will typically be in order. Nobody knows how or why this tradition started, but we do know that it makes our school unique and a lot more fun to play at.
Now, some of you may be wondering what kind of experience you need to join such an awesome section. The answer is NONE! That's another great thing about us. We have people who have been playing tuba since before high school, people who had never even picked one up before coming to this university, and everything in between. So if you are looking to build some strong friendships and have a fantastic marching season, join the Tuba Section! It will be a decision you will never regret!!!
