Marshall students, local players to participate in TUBACHRISTMAS Dec. 1
Saturday, November 24, 2012 - 04:33 Updated 1 year ago Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University
This year’s Huntington TUBACHRISTMAS will take place Saturday, Dec. 1. Registration for participants will start at 10 a.m. and rehearsal will begin at 11 a.m. at the Marshall University-Henderson Center Marching Band Complex on the Huntington campus. The performance will take place at 2 p.m. the same day at the Huntington Mall.

TUBACHRISTMAS was created by Harvey Phillips as an annual event honoring his teacher, the late tubist William J. Bell, who was born Christmas Day, 1902. Every Christmas season, tuba and euphonium players of all ages, from specific geographic areas, gather to pay respect to all the great artists/teachers who represent their heritage. Every TUBACHRISTMAS performance features traditional Christmas carols specially arranged for the first TUBACHRISTMAS (December 22, 1974 in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza) by American composer Alec Wilder, who died on Christmas Eve in 1980.
