About Hodesanna

Showcase the tuba as soloist

The work was written in loving memory of Jeff Hodapp, my friend and former student, who passed away tragically in 2009 at the age of 52.  Jeff was known to all his friends as “Hodes”; thus the unusual title of the work which is a variation on the word of jubilation “Hosanna”. Jeff was a tubist and bass player who enjoyed performing a wide variety of music. In his honor I chose to showcase the tuba as soloist while capturing Jeff’s spirit and love of music with an array of five musical styles (Bop, Waltz, Tango, Elegy, Blues).  John Stevens, Madison, WI USA, April 2015
