As you know, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) was notified in December, 2016, that we were being placed on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

The UTRGV Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble has traveled extensively and now will go to Washington, D.C., to perform on Feb. 2 at the annual U.S. Army Band Tuba Euphonium Workshop. The UTRGV ensemble, made up of the 16 student musicians shown here, is the only collegiate ensemble invited to perform at the workshop.
