Tuba Christmas near you?

Did I mention I really like a good tuba melody?  No, not the oompah back-up — I love it when tubas take the lead, when they sing as only a tuba can.

It’s that time of year I get a chance to hear organized tuba playing for Tuba Christmas.

Like here, in Dallas, at Thanksgiving Square  — the 31st annual Tuba Christmas (2008):

In Texas, the first performance I know of is in Brenham (home of Blue Bell Ice Cream!) on December 3; Amarillo is December 4.   Dallas is set for December 24, at Thanksgiving Square once again.

Is there a Tuba Christmas peformance near you?  Check the website of the Harvey Phillips Foundation, which promotes and organizes the events.

Do you play tuba, or euphonium (baritone), or Sousaphone?

Is America a great place, or what?
