Symphonia is a professional tuba/euphonium ensemble made up of some of the top tuba/euphonium professors players in the world (but mostly in the states). I couldn't find any recordings off of youtube, but there is a couple on their webstie that you can download for free. Some of the works they have done are:
Holst 2nd suite in F
Shostakovich Festive Overture
John Williams March from 1942
Holst Mars from the Planets
Another outstanding Brass Quintet that has contributed a lot to the brass quintet world.
Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakov
Beethoven's 5 Symphony playing with two other brass quintets
Finale from the Firebird played with the Star of Indiana Drum and Bugle Corps
