Rehearsal begins at 1 p.m. The cost to participants is $10 and music selections will come from CAROLS FOR A MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS.

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.
