In today’s through the lens I caught up with a tuba/euphonium quartet from the University of North Texas music department as they went to deliver a tuba valentine.
Dressed in tuxes and carrying a lot of brass they knocked on the door of Debbie Price’s house. Her husband Buddy Price had ordered a little low brass concert for his wife this Valentine’s Day, which happens to be their 31st anniversary as well.READ MORE: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Refuses To Hand Over January 6 Records
The quartet delivered a card and some chocolate roses and then set up to play a couple tunes in Price’s living room. Tubas and euphoniums in four part harmony is sound like no other. A soft smooth melody filled the room as they played “Hey Baby” and “When I Fall in Love”.
The group is part of UNT’s local chapter of the International Tuba Euphonium Association and they use the tuba valentines as a major fundraiser to pay scholarship to clinic and to bring in guest performances at the university. They say tuba valentines is not just for Valentine’s Day. They will send a group to any occasion at any time of year. If you want to send a tuba valentine you can email the group at email@example.com. The prices start at $30 for on campus and go up according to where in the DFW area you would like the delivery.MORE NEWS: Dallas ISD: A Lot Involved In Keeping Doors Open During COVID-19 Surge
