ITEA Legacy Series – Harvey Phillips

HARVEY G. PHILLIPS is described by Gunther Schuller as a legend among brass players and other instrumentalists . . . the major progenitor in his field . . . his efforts on behalf of other musicians never cease.” A world renowned artist, Phillips’ performances include two dozen Carnegie Hall (NYC) solo recitals, the first solo tuba recital at the Library of Congress, over two hundred clinic/recitals at colleges and universities throughout the world, with international tours of Japan, Australia, Scandinavia and Europe. He has been referred to by the press as “Paganini of the Tuba”, TubaMeister”, “Iacocca of the Tuba”, and “Mr. Tuba”, a title conferred upon him by his teacher, the late William J. Bell.
