No, I don't mean horns...
Ever heard "The Planets" by Gustav Holst? Its written for an orchestra with euphoniums (baritones, I believe, if you need to specify) It plays a pretty technical solo in "Mars" and shows up quite a bit. Its not unheard of to have Euphoniums in orchestras, its just uncommon (because its a relatively new instrument)

There are several horn solos in the score, a Euphonium has a much richer sound, it would be beautiful. But, I like the use of tubas so I'll live.
