Tuba Christmas in Annapolis this Saturday

tubachristmasMore than 80 musicians are registered for the second Tuba Christmas concert in Annapolis, Md. this Saturday, December 5th at St. Anne’s Parish on Church Circle in downtown Annapolis from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

The concert will be held outdoors in front of the church, or will move inside the church if it is raining or the temperature drops below 34 degrees.  Same-day registration will be available for interested participants from 10-10:30 St. Anne’s Parish House.  Registration is $10 and includes a Tuba Christmas souvenir button. The concert is open to the public and is free of charge.  Tickets are not required. Naval Academy Band member and tuba player Senior Chief Musician Jarrod Williams is coordinating the Annapolis event.

Tuba Christmas began in 1974 and is an annual event in cities across the world. Musicians are traveling from local towns to include Baltimore, Salisbury, Westminster and Virginia to participate in Annapolis’ premiere event today. One registered musician from Havre De Grace, Md. said he has played in 75 Tuba Christmas events over the years and he is looking forward to this being his 76th. The event is open to musicians of all ages, the youngest participant registered for the Annapolis event is 10 years old.

Part of the fun of Tuba Christmas is that the participants range in skill level and experience.  Students and amateurs sit and play amongst educators and professional musicians, such as Williams and seven other members of the USNA Band who are participating today. Sometimes the professional musicians might not even be tuba players; Williams noted that even a clarinet player from the USNA band who majored in music education is picking up a tuba to join the fun.

The music for Tuba Christmas is specially arranged for low brass instruments and includes holiday favorites for the whole family. The concert will be conducted by J.Ernest Green.

The performers will have one rehearsal from 10:30-11:30 p.m. today at St. Anne’s Parish House before the concert begins at 12:30 p.m.
