Tuba player with Tunica ties making impression
Columbus may have a tuba prodigy on its hands.
Mark Porter, 14, a freshman at Columbus High School, has been playing the tuba for just two years but managed to snag the Best Male Musician designation and first-chair tuba role in the top band at Itawamba Community College’s 535-student band camp this summer.
“It doesn’t happen hardly ever that a freshman even makes the top band. Then to get best overall musician is maybe a one-out-of-100 chance,” said Dennis Cox, guest director for the red band at ICC’s summer band camp and band director at Desoto Central High School.
