When I was in HS, we played the marches and show tunes only and all the tubas ever got was um pas. Then we got a new director who gave use the classics, and suddenly the tubas had something to say. I fondly remember "The Unfinished Synphonie" and the music from "Ben Hur". The theme from the slave ships and sea battle have a rolling bass line that still trills me.
