Allen Merry Tuba Christmas

Sunday, December 15, 2019

Come enjoy a holiday tradition as tuba and euphonium players congregate around the tree on the Village Green at Watters Creek to play Christmas carols and other crowd favorites. Tubists of all ages will participate and fill the green with the sound of low brass. The musicians, who come from all over the metroplex, will be conducted by Jeff Baker, principal Tuba with the Allen Philharmonic. Conceived by tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher, the late William J. Bell (Born Christmas Day, 1902), 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 and 2019 will be the third year the Allen Philharmonic has hosted this tradition.
