11/28/11 ASHLAND, OH -- All tuba, euphonium and baritone players are wanted for Ashland University's TubaChristmas on Saturday, Dec. 3, in Hugo Young Theatre. Musicians will begin registration for the event at 10 a.m. followed by a rehearsal at 10:20 a.m. The public performance, which is free and open to the public, will be held at noon.
TubaChristmas is an idea conceived by Harvey Phillips, professor of tuba at Indiana University. Phillips wanted to demonstrate to the public what a beautiful sound a mass ensemble of tubas and euphoniums could make and to provide an opportunity for fellow low brass players to celebrate the season with the community. TubaChristmas is dedicated to the memory of William J. Bell. It's a fun, holiday tradition the whole family can enjoy.
The registration fee for participating musicians is $5 and includes a 2011 TubaChristmas button. The TubaChristmas carol book is also available for $10. Musicians are asked to bring their own folding stand.
