I would suggest to bring a bottle of water and small snake for the intermission.

Nice afternoon of music. The spirited tuba pieces were most enjoyable.

We loved the performance- perhaps the second half more than the first but only because of the selection of music. Great musicians and the guest Tuba player was fabulous and fun! It was a great trip through the tubas.

Great way to spend a sunday afternoon. Marty Erickson was very entertaining, funny, and a very good tuba player. Exceeded our expectations! The San Jose Wind Symphony was great, too!
