These players still sound like college players. However, It's amazing that the music world is growing more accepting of female players.

The word is tubists. If you're old-fashioned, you can say, tubaists.

Incidently, in the 1970s, when I was in high school Antelope Valley High School had a few years when all 6-10 of their tuba players were girls.

Actually, the musical world accepts anyone who can play without making excuses, doesn't care what kind of music is played, and can show up to a gig when deathly ill.

We have a female tuba player but she does guard during marching season. Last year we had a piano player who played in Wind Ensemble and also played tuba.
