SymbiosisDuo to play tuba/euphonium concert at CCU

SymbiosisDuo, an accomplished tuba/euphonium duet, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20 in the Recital Hall of Coastal Carolina University's Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, as part of its 2011 tour.

Comprised of music professors Stacy Baker on tuba and Gail Robertson on euphonium, SymbiosisDuo, accompanied by Deborah Eastwood on cornet/flugelhorn and Alex Thio on piano, will play an eclectic program that includes selections such as "Ave Maria," "I Got Your Bach" and "Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro)."

Baker and Robertson formed SymbiosisDuo in 2007 to showcase the tuba/euphonium pairing as a performance medium and to promote and disseminate new works for this unique combination of brass instruments. The duo's debut recording was selected as a finalist for the 2010 Roger Bobo Award for Recording Excellence by the International Tuba Euphonium Association.

Baker is professor of music tuba/euphonium at Morehead State University in Morehead, Ky., and has toured and recorded throughout the United States and Europe. Robertson is instructor of euphonium and tuba at the University of Central Florida and past president of the International Women's Brass Conference (IWBC).

The concert is $3 for general admission and free for CCU and HGTC students, faculty and staff, but tickets are required. Tickets may be picked up at the Wheelwright Box Office 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Recital Hall is located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at 113 Chanticleer Dr. West in Conway.
