The Tuba-camp is the happening of the Hungarian tuba player’s community. It’s a great opportunity for young talents to meet and play with the most outstanding artists of the „lowest” brass instrument, in a relaxing and joyful environment. Playing tuba, playing soccer and enjoying the barbecue – fun for both professors and students.
We expect all the young and „forever young” tuba, euphonium or baritone- and tenorhorn players and friends of the instruments to this wonderful event.

About the Tuba-camp
During the six days of the camp our programs serve both professional improvement and community building.

Please send your application: until 30 June 2021.

Until the 90’s the city of Barcs was the meeting point of the Hungarian brass player’s community for the summertime. In this city, situated in the south of Hungary, the Hungarian and foreign brass players demolished the „iron curtain” creating a euphoric ambient, bringing joy, peace, unity and dreams for the participants. With opening our borders and changing the political system it became more easy and regular to meet for brass players living in Hungary and other countries, so the atmosphere of Barcs has lost its unique quality. The tuba player’s community in Hungary has picked up the line, organizing regular tuba camps since 1995 for five times until 2003. Our goal is to revive this tradition and give an opportunity to meet for all whose heart is beating faster hearing the mellow sound of the tuba or it’s „little brothers”. Our first tuba camp in Paks in 2016 was organized with the purpose to bring new life to this tradition and revive the joyful atmosphere that became unforgettable for all former the participants!

We start our daily program with a collective warm-up session. In the morning individual lessons will take place. After lunch our professors start their chamber music sessions. In most of the music schools there are only a handful of tuba players, if not only one. Playing chamber music written for multi-tuba ensembles is unique adventure for most of them. In our camp we form both classical and jazz groups and ensembles and introduce our participants to a wide range of compositions and style. The range of the pieces allow the euphonium, baritone- and tenorhorn players to join on the higher parts and all our players will find the group that fits their taste and skills.
