The Lawrence Bayreuth Graduate Tuben Quintet

The Lawrence Graduate Bayreuth Tuben Quintet is a Wagner tuba quintet that, fluid by design and inclination, is comprised of at least six members who identify as, know, or would like to know, someone who is LGBTQ+.

By queering Wagner, they celebrate and give voice to unconventional instruments and non-traditional ensembles. Informed by their values of inclusivity, diversity, and visibility they aim to build and expand the cannon for their flexible ensemble and advance a non-hierarchical agenda that includes affecting positive social change and creating broader representation for the historically underrepresented.

Made possible by the Sally Fleming Masterclass Fund and sponsored by EXCEL.
