Enjoy the 35th annual performance of Tuba Christmas!
A mass low-brass choir of 150+ tuba and euphonium
players of all ages and abilities will perform traditional Christmas carols
with an enthusiastic audience sing-along. The resulting rich, resonant sound is
like no other and should not be missed. TUBACHRISTMAS was started in 1974 by
tuba great Harvey Phillips as a tribute to his mentor, the legendary tuba
player and teacher William J. Bell. The first TUBACHRISTMAS took place in New
York City's Rockefeller Plaza Ice Rink. The music performed at TUBACHRISTMAS was
arranged by Rochester-born composer Alec Wilder, whose many solo and ensemble
compositions for tuba and euphonium show a great effort to improve the
literature and public image of these often underappreciated instruments. 2017
marks the 44th anniversary for TUBACHRISTMAS concerts, which are now presented
in 290 cities worldwide. TUBACHRISTMAS was brought to Rochester in the early
1980s by local tuba player Joe Baker. It was conducted for many years by his
teacher, Glenn K. Call, mesmerizing audiences at Midtown Plaza and Hochstein
Performance Hall. Now we have a new home for this great Rochester holiday
tradition in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre.
