TubaChristmas

Presented by TubaChristmas at Marquette Regional History Center

TubaChristmas got its start with a concert on the ice rink at New York’s Rockefeller Plaza in 1974.  300 tuba and euphonium  musicians congregated on that day to perform Christmas carols specially arranged by noted composer Alec Wilder.  Since the inaugural concert, tuba and euphonium have met annually in various locations to continue this event.  This year, in over 300 cities across the United States and in several foreign countries , thousands of musicians will play the same arrangements as those performers 43 years ago.

Marquette TubaChristmas got its start a bit more recently, but has rapidly established itself as an annual tradition.  After instrument valves froze during an outdoor concert on one particularly cold December day, the Marquette Regional History Center graciously opened its doors to the group last year and hosted a standing-room only crowd.  Again this year, the concert will be at the History Center, 145 W Spring St in Marquette at 1:30 PM.  It’s free and it’s fun!  See you there!
