Event Description:
Harriman's 29th Annual Merry TubaChristmas Concert.

On Saturday, December 2, 2017 the melodious sounding tuba/euphonium choir under the direction of Sande MacMorran will perform carols and songs of Christmas. Tuba/sousaphone, euphonium/baritone players of all degrees of ability are invited to participate in this event.  

MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS is celebrating its 44th Anniversary (1974-2017)   Created by Harvey Phillips. MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS 2017 concerts will be presented in over 300 cities throughout the United States and in several foreign countries.  Phillips was inspired  to create TUBACHRISTMAS as an annual event honoring his mentor/teacher the late great tubist William J. Bell (born Christmas Day, 1902).  Every Christmas season, tuba and euphonium players of all ages, from specific geographic areas, gather to pay respect - through William J. Bell - to all the great artists/teachers who represent their heritage. Every TUBACHRISTMAS performance features traditional Christmas carols especially arranged (for the first TUBACHRISTMAS, December 22, 1974 on "The Rink at Rockefeller Center") by American composer Alec Wilder (died Christmas Eve, 1980). Through Wilder, TUBACHRISTMAS concerts pay grateful tribute  to  composers who have embraced these noble instruments with solo and ensemble compositions. Depending on the population of any given geographic area, TUBACHRISTMAS   ensembles may attract multiples of 100 participants  aged 8 to over 90 years! The warm, rich organ-like sound of the tuba-euphonium choir has won the ears and hearts of every audience. It is no wonder that TUBACHRISTMAS has become an established Christmas tradition in cities   throughout the world.
