The Allen Philharmonic welcomes area tuba and euphonium players to join us for the MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS 2019 Concert in Allen Texas. The performance will take place outdoors on the Village Green at Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm, Sunday, December 15th at 2:30pm. Dr. Jeff Baker, Allen Philharmonic Principal Tuba and Assistant Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at Texas A & M Commerce, will conduct.
TUBACHRISTMAS was conceived in 1974 by the late Harvey Phillips as a tribute to his teacher and mentor William J. Bell, born on Christmas Day, 1902. “Bill” Bell is recognized by all musicians as one of the most preeminent tuba players throughout the world. The concert is free of charge and open to the public and is presented in conjunction with the Harvey Phillips Foundation.
