I have a problem. At our high school, we have 2 bands. Concert and Symphonic. Me and another guy (Adam) are in symphonic, but there are no tubas in concert band. Our band director is going to have one of the percussionists who plays piano play the tuba part on a bass keyboard set to "tuba" for them at festival. We both expresses how much better it would be for us to just do it. He said no, that's against the rules, whatever that means. But the funny part is that he's going to have his 6th grade son hold a tuba during the performance so it LOOKS like they have a tuba.
So my quesiton is: Should me and Adam riot, or just let things be?
Ah, what a fun topic.
