Celebrate the holiday season with Tuba Christmas this weekend

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - You can celebrate Christmas musically this weekend at Tuba Christmas.

Tuba Christmas is a national event where tuba players gather to perform traditional Christmas music. This is the event’s 43rd year, and the 8th year it’s happened in Marquette.

It usually has at least a dozen tuba players and a crowd of hundreds.
Organizers say Tuba Christmas is fun because of the instrument’s unique sound.

“The tuba is actually a really fun instrument to play, as well as the euphonium, which is like a small tuba, but they just have a resonance that is unusual,” said Tuba Christmas Coordinator, Tom Bronken. “You don't usually get to hear them in a solo situation.”

The free event is happening this Sunday, December 11, beginning at 1:30 p.m., at the Marquette Regional History Center.

Tuba and euphonium players can register at 11:30 a.m. in the NMU Band Room.
