Waynesburg University has hosted a performance of the nationally known TUBACHRISTMAS concert on campus for more than five years. This year, the concert will take place Friday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center (GPAC) on the University’s campus. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

All are welcome to participate in the concert as a performer. Interested tuba and baritone/euphonium players can register for a $10 fee on the day of the concert at 5 p.m. in the GPAC. Rehearsal will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. TUBACHRISTMAS merchandise will be available in the GPAC lobby.

“The event is great for all audiences, especially families, so we hope both the Waynesburg University and Greene County community will join us for this Christmas season carol sing-along,” said Dr. Ronda DePriest, director of the Music Program at the University.

The concert will feature a variety of Christmas carols, specially arranged by composer Alec Wilder to recognize the artistry of tuba music composers in the past.

Harvey Phillips created TUBACHRISTMAS in 1974 honoring tubist William J. Bell. In more than 280 cities throughout the United States and in several foreign countries, tuba and euphonium players gather every Christmas season to pay homage to the artists and teachers of their heritage. This year is the 42nd anniversary of TUBACHRISTMAS.
