Dr. Kevin Wass, professor of tuba at the Texas Tech University School of Music, joins the Front Row to talk about the upcoming annual Octubafest.
Octubafest is a long-standing thing right?
Absolutely. It started in the late 60s, at some of the midwestern universities. I first encountered it at Indiana University when I was doing my master’s degree. They’re Octubafest is two weeks, every night. So here we spread it out over about six weeks. But the big concert is the concert this week with the ensemble.
