Covering a Euphonium Part

[Concert Band-related] My German band had a rehearsal where none of the euph players showed - and the piece had a lot of solo and leading lines in the euph part only. I volunteered to try to cover the euph part, and it was great fun! Lots of agile and/or exposed lines. I often cover bassoon or trombone parts on bari sax, but this was much more fun. I was afraid the part would lie too high, but no prob.

[I'm not sure where this discussion fits, so mods please move it if appropriate.]

What key does a euphonium play in?

The euphonium and baritone parts in concert band music are written in concert pitch bass clef, and in the key of Bb treble clef so that trumpet players can easily switch to baritone if needed.

I’ve had to cover euphonium parts in the past on cello and can confirm parts in bass clef. So usual trick on a Bari sax of add 3 flats etc

Remove three flats or add three sharps, surely ?
