PLAISTOW - The 2013 holiday season will be celebrated with the sound of tubas as the Timberlane Performing Arts Center in Plaistow, hosts it 8th annual TubaChristmas on Sat., December 7.
Merry TubaChristmas is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. Created by Harvey Phillips, Merry TubaChristmas 2013 concerts will be presented in over 200 cities throughout the United States. Phillips was inspired to create TubaChristmas as an annual event honoring his teacher, the late great tubist William J. Bell, born Christmas, 1902.
Every Christmas season, tuba and euphonium players of all ages, gather to pay respect – through William J. Bell - to all the great artists/teachers who represent their heritage. Every performance features traditional Christmas carols especially arranged for the first TubaChristmas in 1974 at NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza.
If you play tuba or euphonium would like to perform in this beloved tradition we’d love to have you join us. Registration begins at 10:45 a.m. for those wishing to participate. Registration fee is $5.00
If you are planning to just come and listen, join us at 2:00 p.m., for the Merry Tuba Christmas concert which will be followed by the Timberlane Community Band Holiday Concert at 3pm. Both concerts are free and tickets are not required.
