Tartan Tuba Band at CMU Performs "Sergeant Pepper"

Carnegie Mellon University will host Carnival Weekend April 20 and 21, and the CMU School of Music promises some great entertainment. Even if you’re not a Beatles fan now, you will be when you hear the Tartan Tuba Band perform “Sergeant Pepper.”

And what could be more unexpected than a tuba and euphonium ensemble covering The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” an iconic album that CMU students would have been listening to 50 years ago?

The Tartan Tuba Band is composed of 12 students, six of whom have contributed arrangements
