Annual Marquette TubaChristmas Holiday Concert – December 9

Marquette, MI  –  November 29, 2018 –  Marquette’s annual TubaChristmas holiday concert will be held on Sunday, Dec 9 at 1:30 p.m. at the Marquette Regional History Center, 145 W. Spring St., Marquette. Tuba and euphonium players from around the area will perform Christmas carols in this annual tradition which is free and open to the public.

TubaChristmas got its start with a concert on the ice rink at New York’s Rockefeller Plaza in 1974. 300 tuba and euphonium players congregated on that day to perform Christmas carols specially arranged by noted composer Alec Wilder. Since the inaugural concert, tuba and euphonium choirs have met annually in various locations to continue this event. This year over 300 cities across the United States and in several foreign countries will play the same arrangements as those performers 44 years ago.

Marquette’s TubaChristmas got its start a bit more recently, but has rapidly established itself as an annual tradition. After instrument valves froze during one particularly cold December day, the Marquette Regional History Center graciously opened its doors to the group a few years ago and has hosted standing-room only crowds. Get there early if you want a chair. Again this year, it’s free, and it’s fun, and it’s at 1:30 PM at the Marquette Regional History Center on Sunday, Dec 9.

See you there!
