Waynesburg University will offer a TUBACHRISTMAS concert Friday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center. Admission to the concert is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

Additionally, all tuba and euphonium players are invited to play in the concert. The registration fee is $10 for players; registration begins at 5 p.m. in the GPAC, and rehearsal will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Musicians who play in TUBACHRISTMAS will have the opportunity to honor composers who embraced the tuba and euphonium, including the first TUBACHRISTMAS composer Alec Wilder. The concert will include traditional Christmas music arranged for these instruments.

TUBACHRISTMAS is in its 43rd year. Harvey Phillips created the event in 1974 to honor his mentor William J. Bell. Each year, tuba and euphonium players gather in more than 200 cities around the country to pay tribute to Bell and other musicians who have left a valued legacy. The concert is a chance for musicians and audience members to reflect on and understand the heritage of instrumentalists, as well as the high performance standards and personal integrity and values established by musicians of the past.

For more information, contact Ronda DePriest, professor of instrumental music and director of the music program, at rdepries@waynesburg.edu or 724-852-3420.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region.
