October is for tubas

The School of Music’s annual Octubafest featured student soloists, international competition winners and others from the euphonium/tuba studio Oct. 20–22. Above, the big brass instruments sprouted like tulips at a pre-festival rehearsal last week under the direction of tuba/euphonium Prof. Fritz Kaenzig. Kaenzig, who joined the U-M in 1989, says the annual event began more than 10 years ago to highlight the importance and musicality of the instruments. Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services
