TUBACHRISTMAS

HolidayTubas

Tuba and euphonium players are again invited to participate in one or more of the TUBACHRISTMAS concerts/events presented throughout the world. Help achieve maximum participation for your area's TUBACHRISTMAS concert. Your efforts will be appreciated by tuba and euphonium players everywhere.

 PLEASE   READ   CAREFULLY
INSTRUCTIONS:  See the listing by state for the city or cities in which you wish to participate.  Each TUBACHRISTMAS event will have its own registration, rehearsal and performance schedule.
SUGGESTIONS: Bring a carrying strap, music stand or lyre; many concerts will be performed while standing.  For outside concerts, plastic mouthpieces are more comfortable if the weather is cold.  Space is limited at most rehearsal sites: if at all possible, use gig bags rather than hard cases. 
ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME TO REACH THE ASSEMBLY POINT DESIGNATED FOR EACH TUBACHRISTMAS.
 * WEAR BRIGHT COLORS *
REGISTRATION:  READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR EACH CITY CAREFULLY!  All participants must register at the assembly point for each TUBACHRISTMAS.   REGISTRATION REQUIRES A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTION OF $10.00 (registration fee).  Each registrant will receive a TUBACHRISTMAS 2014 Commemorative  Button.  Registration fees help cover increasing production, promotion, and administrative costs for TUBACHRISTMAS.

Also available in advance only by mail, via participant order form (6 x 8 1/2 upper parts for treble clef tubas, Eb/Bb, Salvation Army, British Brass Band players). IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE A GOOD SOUNDING CHOIR.  Since rehearsal time is always limited, getting and preparing the music in advance greatly improves the musicality of every performance.  To order music in advance see order form.  Allow time for delivery.
