Jason Casanova, Euphonium & Tuba
Studio: Mason Hall Room 126-A
A native of San Antonio, Texas, Jason Casanova brings his southwestern flair to the southeast. He is in high demand as both a performer and teacher of euphonium and low brass throughout the region. He holds a Masters in Euphonium Performance from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA and Bachelor of Arts with emphasis in Euphonium Performance from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX.
As a solo performer, Mr. Casanova has won or placed in many regional, national, and international euphonium solo and chamber competitions including the Leonard Falcone Festival International Euphonium and Tuba Competition and both the International Euphonium Institute's solo and duet competitions. In terms of ensemble performance, he is currently Solo Euphonium with the Georgia Brass Band, a founding member of Divergence (a tuba/euphonium quartet), and also plays with other diverse ensembles such as the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra (performing music from traditional Klezmer music to Frank Zappa), and Mercury Orkestar (an ensemble that performs traditional Balkan tunes fused with modern western pop music).
In addition to performing and teaching, Jason also arranges music. His arrangement of the “Serenade from the Student Prince,” was recently published by Euphonium.com Publications with several more on the way.
Mr. Casanova has been teaching at Jacksonville State University since Fall 2017.
