Tennessee Technological University Tuba/Euphonium Studio (USA)

The Tennessee Technological University Tuba Ensemble, currently celebrating its 40th year of performances and recording activity, has been selected by The Tennessee Board of Regents to receive the prestigious TBR Academic Excellence and Quality Award. The TTTE is the first music program in the state of Tennessee to receive this award. Additionally, the ensemble has been notified that its latest CD recording release, CARNEGIE VI, a documentation of the group's sixth appearance at Carnegie Hall in New York City, on the Mark Records label was submitted and accepted by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) to be included on its “Grammy Entry List.”

The internationally acclaimed Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble (TTTE) from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville , Tennessee , is considered the “pioneer” ensemble of its kind. The TTTE is continually received with favor by audiences from Carnegie Hall in New York to Jackson Square in New Orleans . The group has been described as one that is “not a novelty, but an ensemble with a unique sound.” The TTTE has received the highest accolades from the professional world of tubists and euphoniumists, music educators, and professional reviewers. Following the example of the TTTE, similar groups have formed all over the world. Music generated by and for the Tech ensemble has been performed in Japan , Australia , Canada , all over Western Europe, and throughout the United States .

Organized in 1967 by the present conductor, R. Winston Morris, the TTTE was the birth of a new concept in music for multiple tubas. Previous to this, there had been a very limited amount of activity involving chamber music for tubas. The Tech ensemble introduced the idea of the large tuba/euphonium choir with parts being frequently doubled. Needless to say, there was a total lack of literature for such an ensemble; therefore, the Tech group had to commence an extensive “search” for music. That “search” has led to the composition and arrangement of over one thousand works specifically done for the Tech ensemble by outstanding composers from the United States and abroad.
