Tuba Christmas near you?


Did I mention I really like a good tuba melody?  No, not the oompah back-up — I love it when tubas take the lead, when they sing as only a tuba can.

It’s that time of year I get a chance to hear organized tuba playing for Tuba Christmas.

Like here, in Dallas, at Thanksgiving Square  — the 31st annual Tuba Christmas (2008):

In Texas, the first performance I know of is in Brenham (home of Blue Bell Ice Cream!) on December 3; Amarillo is December 4.   Dallas is set for December 24, at Thanksgiving Square once again.

Is there a Tuba Christmas peformance near you?  Check the website of the Harvey Phillips Foundation, which promotes and organizes the events.

Do you play tuba, or euphonium (baritone), or Sousaphone?

Is America a great place, or what?

  2. I’m already getting my lip in shape for Tuba Christmas in Grand Junction, Colorado. Now if the organizer would only post the date. The other Colorado and Wyoming locations are just too far away.

Play nice in the Bathtub -- don't splash soap in anyone's eyes.
