The picture of me in front of the lake holding my tuba is from when I was in Matsumoto, Japan playing for Seiji Ozawa's Saito Kinen Festival Orchestra. I am a member of the orchestra and have been playing with them every few Summers since 2004. I rented this tiny little Japanese car for the day and drove into the surrounding mountains to sight-see and find a place to practice. In the city where the festival is held it is EXTREMELY difficult to find a place to practice with a large instrument without disturbing a lot of people.
