COA-Fall14.jpgHosted by the Waynesburg University Fine Arts Department and the Waynesburg University Music Program, TUBACHRISTMAS will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 12, in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of Waynesburg University. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend. 

Local tuba and baritone/euphonium players are invited to take part in the annual performance. 

Concert registration is at 5 p.m., followed by rehearsal from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center.

TUBACHRISTMAS is meant to recognize musical heritage and honor all great artists and teachers whose legacy has provided high performance standards, well-structured pedagogy, professional integrity, personal values and a camaraderie envied by all other instrumentalists. 

Performers will include any interested tuba, euphonium and baritone players in the area. Audience members will become part of an established tradition throughout the world and enjoy their favorite holiday tunes as never before through the rich, organ-like sound of this low-brass ensemble.

TUBACHRISTMAS was conceived in 1974 as a tribute to the late artist and teacher William J. Bell, born on Christmas in 1902. The traditional Christmas music performed at the first TUBACHRISTMAS was arranged by American composer Alec Wilder who died December 24, 1980. Wilder composed many solo and ensemble compositions for tuba and euphonium and was a loyal supporter of every effort to improve the literature and public image of these instruments.
