Students Take Up Tubas For V-day

02.05.13 08:05 AM

MEMPHIS,* (UPI) –* A group of about a dozen tuba players at the University of Memphis said they are taking Valentine’s Day requests for romantic serenades.

Zack Corpus, a member of the tuba troupe, said the Scheidt School of Music students will play two-song serenades while delivering chocolates and cards to the sweethearts of those who pay the determined fee, The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal reported Monday.

“It’s so much more unique to have tuba valentines because there’s a kind of novelty to it. Plus, it’s a lot more embarrassing,” Corpus said.

Corpus said the songs in the group’s repertoire include “My Girl” by The Temptations, “A Whole New World” from Disney’s “Aladdin,” “I Can’t Help Myself” by The Temptations, “Everything I Do” by Brian Adams and “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift.

Corpus said the fees start at $25 for an on-campus performance and increase for off-campus appearances.

The group said they are hoping to raise at least $1,000 for the school of music.
