Eric Larson – Holiday Tubas Arranger

Eric LarsonFollowing our Holiday Tubas performance, Eric Alexander decided to write this press release about Eric Larson, the arranger of most of our music. He has been a loyal contributor to our event since, and has been playing this event since 1978! Thank you Eric, for you arrangements and your dedication.

Here is a quote from Bob Yeats from the press release:

“He’s just got a gift for making these arrangements,” Yeats said. “He understands the instruments and how the ensemble works. With all low instruments, you can’t get lush harmonies or complicated accompaniments. He knows that outside, an instrument can break down-you have to have everything covered by more than one player.

“People who are a lot more famous have made some arrangements that are not nearly as good as Eric’s, because they’re too complicated. He knows how to avoid that. And he has a quiet sense of humor, which is why his arrangements are so successful. There’s always something amusing or entertaining going on.”
