The Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble will present its annual spring concert on Wednesday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Wattenbarger Auditorium Bryan Fine Arts Building.

The TTTE is an internationally acclaimed student group known for performing a wide variety of literature, and the spring concert will exemplify that tradition.

With 25 recording projects, seven Carnegie Hall appearances, two World's Fairs performances, numerous national and international conference engagements and festival appearances in Charleston and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the TTTE is one of the most successful performing collegiate ensembles in history.

The TTTE and its founding director, R. Winston Morris, are responsible for the composition and arrangement of more music for the tuba than any other single source.

Featured music at the TTU spring concert will range from one of the most famous Dixieland tunes, "Stuttin' with some BBQ," back to Johann Sebastian Bach, then forward to Rossini, and a lot in-between.

A special performance will serve as a tribute to the late Wayne Pegram and his contributions to the repertoire of the TTTE.

The concert is free and open to the public.
