While the family stopped touring together full time in the late 1980’s, they continue to reunite annually for special events.  Tuba Bach is honored to be considered such an event by the family, and looks forward to the return of Raymond and Ruth and to adding Alice, Al, Nancy Ann, Michael and Jennifer to the Tuba Bach family. arrow Website
