Imagine a cozy scene out of a Rockwell painting, with all your nearest and dearest gathered with red cheeks upturned and mouths open to make a joyful noise. Now, add a collection of tubas, baritones and euphoniums. I honestly don't think there is a better Christmas scene."
Tuba, baritone and euphonium players are invited to participate in this festive concert. Registration is $10 and will be collected at the door. Participants should plan to arrive at 5 p.m. for setup and rehearsal.
Waynesburg University has hosted a regional TUBACHRISTMAS concert event on campus since 2008. This annual concert features an arrangement of traditional Christmas carols performed by the TUBACHRISTMAS ensemble, with opportunities for the audience to sing along.
“Imagine a cozy scene out of a Rockwell painting, with all your nearest and dearest gathered with red cheeks upturned and mouths open to make a joyful noise,” said Eric Brewer, instructor of music at Waynesburg University. “Now, add a collection of tubas, baritones and euphoniums. I honestly don't think there is a better Christmas scene."
