About Tuba camp
The six days of Tuba camp are made up of professional and community-building programs from 22 to 27 August 2022. Of course, concerts, community-building programs and leisure opportunities are also available!

Application deadline: 30 June 2022

In the 1990s, Barcs was the meeting place of the brass community. In the village of south-eastern Hungary, hungarian and foreign „vibrators” destroyed the Iron Curtain during the camp, and a euphoric tone emerged that brought joy, peace, unity and dream to the hearts of the participants. After the change of regime, it quickly became natural for Hungarians living outside and inside our borders, as well as foreign musicians, to meet, so Barcs could no longer bring as special a feature to the life of the musicians as before. But the need for unity did not die out from the heart of the tubas, since 1995 tuba camps have been held about every two years. But that row was interrupted after five sessions, with the tubas meeting only once since 2003. The organizers of the Paks camp aim to bring the tradition back to life, to meet regularly those whose hearts beat more when they hear the sound of the deepest brass instrument or one of its little brothers… In 2016, the Tuba camp in Paks was organized with the aim of re-ingening the atmosphere that only the person who has been to Camp Tuba knows at least once!

Tuba camps in Hungary:

In view of the current situation, you can read a comprehensive factsheet on the epidemiological preventive rules in the following document. – hungarian page

In the mornings, the day starts with joint breathing exercises and spraying. In the morning, primary, secondary and college age groups also take individual tuba lessons, and after lunch teachers hold chamber music sessions.

Many musical institutions have few, often only one tuba, so it is not really possible to form a tubular chamber. Therefore, tuba camp has a special opportunity to form a tuba ensemble, a tuba orchestra. In two styles, classical music and jazz, everyone can try out as a member of a tuba band, the higher solos of which can be heard by euphonium players, baritone horn players and tenor horn players.
