On October 26th, right on the heels of an OPL tour of Hungary, Austria and Slovenia, I shall be departing for New York with my wife, Kristina and our esteemed pianist, Lauretta Bloomer. It will be the first destination on a coast to coast tour of the United States. My brother Kyle will be joining us for this wonderful tour as viruoso tubist of the highest order! The purpose of our musical tour is three-fold; to bring high quality and virtuoso brass playing to young audiences and aspiring professionals, to perform and sell recent and lesser known works of mine and to demonstrate and discuss the concept of making a living in music performance without actually holding a position in a symphony orchestra.

The program is as follows:

Concerto Grosso from “l‘Estro Armonico”.—-Antonio Vivaldi
Sonatina for Tuba and Piano—–Kerry Turner
Twelve-Tone Waltz
La Entrada de los Caballeros—-Kerry Turner
Irish Reel and Leaving Home from “Far and Away”—-John Williams
One Hand, One Heart/Somewhere from West Side Story—-L. Bernstein
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing—–Kerry Turner
Chaconne———-Kerry Turner
Twas a Dark and Stormy Night——Kerry Turner
All the Things You Are—-Jerome Kern
When I Fall in Love—-Errol Garner

We will also be presenting a number of masterclasses at some of the venues along the way. You can contact the various schools of music or even send me an e-mail ( for more information.
