Ready for Tuba Christmas?

One of my musical goals is to play Tuba Christmas.

CBS Sunday Morning sorta explained why back in 2013.

I haven’t had a Sousaphone, or anything else close to a tuba since 1971. So, to be ready to play is a real stretch.

Son Kenny’s euphonium is here at the house, too big for his New York City closets. It calls to me like a siren. But there are mouthpiece problems . . . mostly resolved. And now I have the music, and a CD to practice with.

Dallas’s Tuba Christmas is December 24. Denton is December 22, and Fort Worth is December 21. Wish me luck, and some good lip.

Do you support Tuba Christmas in your town? Do you play?

    You’ve got one close? Houston, Victoria, Corpus Christi?

    One could do a nice tour of Texas hitting all of them. I need to get off Twitter and practice more!


  2. Yes, I support local tuba Christmas, but I only play the piano.
