Arthur Hovey discovered traditional jazz as a student at Yale and managed to stay active through graduate school and the next 35 years as a high school physics teacher.

Art was principal tubist with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra for 10 years and currently performs with the Connecticut Symphonic Band and the Civic Orchestra of New Haven as well as Heartbeat and Galvanized Jazz Bands.

Art’s tuba playing is second to none, whether it’s Clarinet Polka, a slow ballad, Louis’ chorus on Potato Head Blues, or trading fours with anyone! As one reviewer expressed it, “Art gives new life to the Tuba.” And his String Bass playing ain’t bad either! Art also leads the very successful Sugarfoot Youth Jazz Band.
