Department of Music to celebrate ‘Octubafest’ next two Mondays

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Members of the Marshall University tuba and euphonium studio in the Department of Music will present a recital of solo performances to kick off their annual celebration of Octubafest at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, in Smith Music Hall on Marshall’s Huntington campus.

Then, on the following Monday, Oct. 31, “Tubonium,” Marshall’s tuba/euphonium ensemble, will present a concert with an array of Halloween-themed compositions to celebrate Tubaween. This year the program will feature a combined ensemble including Department of Music students and faculty, local high school students and community members. The Oct. 31 concert will also take place at 8 p.m. in Smith Music Hall.

“Come enjoy the festive costumes, decorations and free candy,” said Dr. George Palton, adjunct professor of tuba at Marshall. “There will be ‘kid-friendly’ activities and costumes are welcome!” 

Admission to both of these events is free and open to the public.
