Dr. Thomas J. Ricer is the new tubist with the Royal Hawaiian Band and began playing with the ensemble on a full-time basis in August 2012. Established by King Kamehameha III in 1836, the Royal Hawaiian Band is the only ensemble in America with a royal legacy and, as a department of the City and County of Honolulu, it is the only full time municipal band in the United States.

Dr. Ricer also joined the faculty of the University of Hawaii at Manoa this fall, teaching tuba, euphonium, and music education. Ricer holds a B.M. from Miami University where he studied with Mike Thornton, an M.M. from the University of Tennessee where he studied with Sande MacMorran and a D.M.A. Don Harry.
