TUBACHRISTMAS® concerts are events of public performances of tuba and euphonium players of all ages who honor the heritage of their chosen instruments in public concerts of traditional Christmas music. Through this medium they acknowledge the legacy of great artists/teachers through William J. Bell (born Christmas Day, 1902) and pay grateful tribute to composers who have embraced the instruments at the base of the band/orchestra with their solo and ensemble compositions through Alec Wilder (died Christmas Eve, 1980) who arranged the Christmas carols for the first TUBACHRISTMAS held Sunday, December 22, 1974 in Rockefeller Center, NYC.
