Posted by Ashley Wise on Mon, Nov 26, 2012 @ 09:11 AM

Hosted by the Waynesburg University Fine Arts Department and the Waynesburg University Music Program, TUBACHRISTMAS will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

Local tuba and baritone/euphonium players are invited to take part in the annual performance. Rehearsal will run from 5 to 7 p.m. prior to the start of the performance December 7. Music may be purchased at the event or through the Waynesburg University website. TUBACHRISTMAS hats and scarves will also be available for purchase. Performer registration begins at 4:30 p.m., and the cost is $5.

The Waynesburg University Music Program encourages performers to decorate their instruments for the holiday season. Performers will include any interested tuba, euphonium and baritone players in the area.

TUBACHRISTMAS is presented throughout the world and was conceived in 1974 as a tribute to the late artist and teacher William J. Bell, born on Christmas Day in 1902. TUBACHRISTMAS is meant to “recognize musical heritage and honor all great artists and teachers whose legacy has given us high performance standards, well-structured pedagogy, professional integrity, personal values and a camaraderie envied by all other instrumentalists.”
