Not impossible as I've done it with a smaller group, but definitely difficult. |
I expect it's impossible to get first division at contest without tuba. You must decide how your admin and parents will roll with the situation.
If it were me, I'd try moving a trumpet. Or make an open invitation to the entire band. Moved a sax player once. Obviously, depends on kid.
I've marched bass clarinet, but that won't be enough sound alone. We were successful at concert contest once with 2 bass clarinet, a contra-clarinet and no tuba but I doubt you could march a contra. And again, probably not enough sound.
Bass guitar or synth is an option I've seen.
