I am a member of the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble, Austin Brass Band, Chaparral Dixielanders, Longhorn Alumni Band and New Austin Polka Band – so this instrument is very important to me. I understand that the chances of recovering my tuba are slim but I thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone connected with music in Austin.

I was thinking the other day that there should be a registry for this kind of situation. Does anyone know of one?
