The Allen Philharmonic presents Allen TUBACHRISTMAS. Conceived by tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher, the first Tuba Christmas was presented at Rockefeller Center in 1974. This unusual Christmas tradition is firmly established in over 200 cities around the world. Tuba players of all ages are welcome. Registration begins at noon at Blue House Too, located at 934 Watters Creek Drive. Rehearsal begins at 1 p.m. The cost to participants is $10 and music selections will come from CAROLS FOR A MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS. Songbooks will be available for purchase onsite if the performers do not already own a copy of the music. The musicians will be conducted by Jeff Baker, principal Tuba with the Allen Philharmonic. The community can watch musicians when they congregate on the Village Green in front of the Tree on Village Green Drive at 2:30 p.m., filling Watters Creek with the sound of low brass. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated, themed tubas.
