CIRCLEVILLE – Tuba Christmas will be performing for free this weekend in Circleville.
Tuba Christmas is approaching its 48th year and was started in 1974 by Harvey Phillips as a tribute to William J. Bell, who was born on Christmas Day in 1902.
Since the event’s inception tuba, sousaphone, baritone and euphonium players have come together to play holiday favorites in a unique Christmas experience.
Tuba Christmas is held in cities worldwide as a celebration of those who play, teach and compose music in the tuba family.
Circleville Tuba Christmas will be held on Sunday, the 21st, at Pumpkin Show Park at 3:00 P.M. It will be a free concert featuring Christmas carols performed by a large ensemble of tubas and euphoniums, with plenty of opportunities for audience members to sing along.
