MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - On Sunday, Dec. 10, the annual "Carols for a Merry Tuba Christmas" concert is coming to the Marquette Regional History Museum. Marquette area musicians have been coming together for the holidays since 2010 to performing on their tubas and euphoniums.
The music they're playing was first performed in 1974 in New York at the Rockefeller Center, and now it's performed for crowds around the world.
"Oh the crowd loves it, the crowds grow every year," Northern Michigan University Director of Bands Dr. Steve Grugin said. "It's Christmas music that's been arranged for basically tuba quartet, it's a wonderfully warm sound that's different than you would think, it all blends together and, there's a lot of sonority to the sound."
Admission to the concert is free, and open to the public. After the concert, they will be performing at the Jacobetti Home for Veterans at 3 p.m.
