In addition to the volunteer performers, the event also showcases a "Celebrity Tubist" which this year is going to be a surprise guest and will be revealed by Dr. Scott Garlock, the event organizer, at the concert.
TubaChristmas is an idea conceived by Harvey Phillips, Professor of Tuba at Indiana University. Mr. Phillips wanted to demonstrate to the public what a beautiful sound a mass ensemble of tubas and euphoniums could make and to provide an opportunity for fellow low brass players to celebrate the season with the community. TubaChristmas is dedicated to the memory of Mr. William J. Bell. It’s a fun, holiday tradition that the whole family can enjoy.
The registration fee for participating musicians is $10 and includes a 2019 TubaChristmas button. The TubaChristmas carol book is also available for $20.
