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 $5.00 (registration fee). Each registrant will
receive a TUBACHRISTMAS 2012 Commemorative Button. Registration
fees help cover increasing production, promotion, and administrative
costs for TUBACHRISTMAS.
MUSIC: CAROLS FOR A MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS is available at
registration for $20.00, (bass clef-C, four part score form) & (treble
clef-Bb, two upper parts). Also available in advance by mail, via participant
order form (treble clef tubas, Eb/Bb, Salvation Army, British Brass
Band players). Large version 8 1/2 x 11 bass or treble $25.00. Music
contains 33 selections, including numbers arranged by Norlan
Bewley to enhance the original nineteen traditional Christmas carols
arranged by Alec Wilder. 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.
