What: Celebrate Christmas by joining in the Holiday Tuba Festival. A jolly gathering of musicians creating some holiday cheer.
When: In December each year. Tuba, baritone and euphonium players decked out in tinsel and Santa hats from local schools play along side professional musicians at spectacular outdoor concerts to celebrate the holiday season.
Where: Any Canadian city or town can host their own Holiday Tuba Festival, uniting school bands, choirs, and musicians in festive spirit. Please let us know if you are organizing one.
Why: Holiday Tuba Festival demonstrates the power of music education and how music unites us all. The Coalition for Music Education has been a proud partner since 1992.
