Marietta College’s Edward E. MacTaggart Department of Music will host its 12th annual Merry TubaChristmas at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, December 10th, at the Alma McDonough Auditorium. Area tuba, baritone and euphonium players are invited to participate. Merry Tuba Christmas is free and open to the public.
Merry Tuba Christmas is celebrating its 42nd anniversary. Created by Harvey Phillips, Merry Tuba Christmas concerts will be presented in more than 250 cities throughout the United States and in several foreign countries. Phillips was inspired to create Tuba Christmas as an annual event honoring his teacher, the late great tubist, William J. Bell (born Christmas Day, 1902).
