After a one-year absence due to a faculty study leave, the local holiday favorite TubaChristmas returns to Ashland University’s Hugo Young Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 7, at noon.

The concert is free and open to the public and area tuba, euphonium and baritone players are invited to perform.

Musician registration will begin at 10 a.m. followed by a rehearsal at 10:20 a.m. 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 $10 and includes a 2013 TubaChristmas button.

The TubaChristmas carol book is also available for $10. Musicians are asked to bring their own folding stand.

For more information, contact Professor of Music Dr. Scott Garlock at 419.289.5134 or [email protected], or visit the Web site at www.ashland.edu/music .
