Tubas Carol for Christmas

Dec 22, 2008

TubaChristmas is an annual event that brings together hundreds of tuba and euphonium players of all ages and music levels, shapes and sizes. And they all perform arrangements of traditional Christmas tunes.

Kansas City, MO – The event was founded 30 years ago in New York City by Missouri native Harvey Philips. Now there are more than 200 concerts scheduled throughout the country. It's been a longtime tradition in Kansas City - KCUR's Elana Gordon stopped by the local event this weekend at the Lyric Theater, and brought back this audio postcard.
