Michigan Youth Euphonium & Tuba Ensemble

Up to date as of 03/9/21 for 2021-2022 season
The Michigan Youth Euphonium & Tuba Ensemble (MYETE) provides students advanced experience in performing a variety of euphonium & tuba ensemble repertoire. Under the direction of Prof. David Zerkel, students will work with current U-M graduate and undergraduate students from the SMTD Euphonium & Tuba Studio to bolster their overall musicianship, learn exciting ensemble repertoire, and participate in weekly rehearsals culminating in end of semester performances.

We are currently planning on holding MYETE rehearsals in person for the Fall 2021 Semester. In the event that conditions do not allow us to host rehearsals safely in person, we are also planning a robust online MYTE experience that will build upon what was offered during the 2020-2021 season.

U-M Faculty Director: Professor David Zerkel

Rehearsal Time: Sundays, 1:00 – 2:00 PM
Rehearsal Location: Earl V. Moore Music Building (UM North Campus, 1100 Baits Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48109)
