Tuba troupe set for Sunday show

September 20, 2013 by  

This weekend, there is a chance to see a group that has been performing recitals in various school districts and at the faculty department since its inception in 1986, when it was a feature performance at the ‘Tubefest’.

The Long Island Tuba Quartet plays jazz, rock, and early pop, among other genres, and is bound to have kept companies offering poster printing services busy in the build-up to the group’s appearance.

Besides playing at schools, the quartet has performed at libraries and in parks as invited guests, and was invited to perform as part of the ‘Death and Dying’ seminar in Stony Brook. Members active since its inception include Jeff Furman, Done Sherman, Michael Canipe, and Bill Troiano.

Often invited to perform at weddings and Christmas parties throughout the region, Troiano has been the group’s chairman for the past 31 years and was a member of renowned Guy Lombardo orchestra for two years. With music from Broadway musicals likely to feature, it promises to be a good time for all.

The cost to attend this concert is $10 per person. The Long Island Tuba Quartet will be performing on Sunday, September 22, starting at 3:00 pm at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts located at 71 East Main Street in Patchogue, New York, just down the road from Smithtown.
